July 15 - July 17


Join Melanie Barash Levitt, owner of Jackson Art, for a unique experience combining plein air painting, (beginner and intermediate welcome) two private yoga classes, light hiking and touring Monhegan Island.  This retreat will be reserved for a small group taking place in one of the most beautiful places in the world!  We will spend a rustic weekend at the Trailing Yew. (hearty breakfast included)

Cost includes painting instruction and demos, two nights accommodation with breakfast at the Trailing Yew (your own private room),  two private group yoga classes with ocean view, wine/cheese welcome upon arrival and a tour around the island.  Melanie will be working in oils but you can also work in acrylics, watercolors or even just sketch. You can also add a morning or evening massage with Ginger Rober to make the trip even more relaxing! Cost for massage is $105 for an hour and must be booked in advance on a first come, first serve basis.

Participants are expected to cover costs of their lunch and dinner, and transportation to and from the island.  Participants should also bring all their own art supplies. (rent a French plein air easel from us for $35 for the weekend.  Easel must be picked up and dropped off at Jackson Art)
