Rachelle Eason presents…
3 BIG Days of ART!
How do you grow?
We are usually in a perpetual state of movement, yet we often don’t realize how that movement is nourishing our growth.
How about taking 3 days to put that movement into growing as an artist?!
In Blooming yoU Art Retreat with Rachelle Eason, we will unearth our voices and tell our unique stories through art and even some words. We will concentrate on creating visual layers with printing, painting, and ink. Within that realm of artistry, expressions of our essence will be revealed. The three days we spend together will pause moments in time and nourish our true selves; and do so within a garden of beautiful fellowship!
Above and beyond our watercolors and gouache, we’ll lean into…
Linoleum Block Printing
Gelli Plate Monoprinting
Wet and Dry Embossing
Hand Stitched Bookmaking
and We’ll Create…
A Beautiful Handstitched Book of your personal visual stories
Wall Art on handmade watercolor paper (ready to mat and frame if desired)
Numerous Small Works of art
We’ll be creating a few different pieces, in motion with one while other segments are drying; a beautifully choreographed dance will evolve as our pieces progress. And when it is time to say “Farewell,” we will wander away with beautiful art, refreshed and inspired creative energy, and a bond of friendship that will continue, even if geographic miles set us all apart.
In an upstairs loft at a quaint coffee house in the charming town of Bartow, Florida, a group of artsy women will come together and bloom!
You are invited to be one of those blossoms!

Anything in excess of what is presented on our menu, and any snacks or additional drinks through the day will be paid for by the student directly to Unfiltered.
Dinner will be on own, but I will have suggestions for places to go. I am imagining that some would like to venture out and let loose! 😎 (We do have an option to have dinner catered by Unfiltered also. As we get closer, we may discuss this further.) Please note: Dinners are not included in retreat registration.
👩🏻🎨Upon registration, there will be a liability waiver that you will need to sign and email back to me.↞↞ Your registration will not be confirmed until I receive this signed document.

PLEASE NOTE: Our event space is upstairs with no elevator access. Please be sure that you can physically go up and down the stairs at least once each way each day. There is a restroom upstairs and food will be brought up to us.
Retreat registrations are not refundable. If you have an emergency that arises please email me to discuss a transfer to another person if you have someone that would like to do that. If the retreat is full, there may be someone on the waiting list that can take your spot and I may be able to connect you together.
Lodging and Transportation…
Lodging and transportation are responsibility of the student. Hampton Inn Bartow and Holiday Inn Express & Suites Bartow are within a five minute drive of the venue.
There are campgrounds close by and Airbnbs as well. Grab a group of friends and stay at an Airbnb for extra fun!
Bartow, FL is located in between Tampa and Orlando, although the Tampa airport would be closer. It is a bit of a way to Uber so renting a car may be the easiest.
Rest up and be ready for loads of fabulously artsy frolicking!
See you in October!
