Caregiver Art Retreat

We are excited to tell you about our Caregiver Art Retreat coming up in February!

St. Brigid's Villa is a serene pastoral location on the west side of Guelph, just a half hour from Kitchener-Waterloo. Rachel and Wendy will provide their warm hospitality for this day of caregiver self care. Our day will include warm drinks and snacks, as well as a light lunch (vegan, gluten free options provided) . Enrollment is limited to 20 participants. 


Participants will be invited to try a variety of art media including watercolour, gouche and acrylic paints, collage, needle felting and creating 3D pieces. 


We will refuel, reflect and restore with a playful and light-hearted spirit.


This session is for anyone who is providing care for a loved one in or out of their home. Perhaps you are caring for a spouse, an adult son or daughter, a parent, or a friend. Regardless, caregiving can be isolating and tedious at times. Art and play can help rejuvenate our energy and our spirit.


For more information or to register, please email steppingstonesarts@gmail.com. The registration fee can be etransfered to the same email address or you can arrange to pay by cheque or credit card.
