A special thanks to all of the extraordinary artists that I have had the good fortune to meet in the workshops over the years. I am so grateful! - Marty Brens

Since 1990, we've been offering fine art instruction through plein air and studio workshops in a variety of locations. Artists may choose an all-inclusive package at one of the ranch retreats or a figure workshop in the spacious studio.

 Plein Air And Studio Workshops

 "Thanks for all you did to make this artist workshop so special. The instruction was outstanding and your invisible hand tending to every detail was noticed and appreciated by everyone!" Marie

Step Away From the Usual!

Don't settle for an average workshop experience.

Have you felt like just another face in an over-crowded class?

You will receive more "personalized time" with our higher instructor-to-student ratio.  Our maximum size of class enrollment is now 8-10 students per workshop and in Puerto Vallarta it is just 7 students.

The most rewarding workshop is when you are able to make a real art connection with the instructor and the other artists, and go home with new knowledge and new friends.

You will gain a wealth of information and enjoy an unforgettably rich experience for your money well spent.
