Come and join us for our fall painting retreat!

This painting retreat is designed for artists of any skill level who would like to dive in and dedicate their workshop time to painting.

Experienced artists, come and create while being surrounded by a nurturing community of artists over the course of a relaxing week in the beautiful setting of Mo-Ranch in the Texas Hill Country.

Leisure artists or beginners, come and create while being guided through the painting workshops by this year’s retreat leader, Juliana Crownover. During this retreat, Julia will be focusing us on pastels, but she is comfortable teaching any painting medium. Some of the possible talents that she will share with you all include an under-painting technique, mixed media techniques, brushwork and much more! Click the leadership tab to learn more about Juliana.

Juliana Crownover

Juliana Crownover is an award-winning painter who has been painting in pastels and oils for over 20 years and teaching for 15 years. She has a BA from Austin College in biology, art and environmental studies. She is a member of the Southwest Pastel Society and Outdoor Painter Society. She describes her passion this way: “In my own art, I use light and color to bring out beauty in everyday life, whether that is a trail I have hiked 100 times, or my son hanging laundry on a line. In that way I use my art as a reminder of where to find beauty all around us, and to slow down in our daily lives so that we may see it. In my classes I strive to create a balance that allows enough freedom so that students can create their own art, and enough direction to ensure success. Aside from the end-goal of finished art, I think the process should be enjoyed and I work hard to create an environment that allows for that.”  You can learn more about her art on her website: or her blog:
