IT'S TIME TO MAKE TIME FOR YOURSELF
Time to think, time to create.
The first rule of Rule Breakers Art Retreats is that there are no rules! This is a place for experimenting with trial and error.
At RBAR we believe that you can have the best of both worlds when it comes to art instruction: guided learning PLUS the freedom to play and explore. We provide you with the framework by teaching you new techniques and processes. Then we give you room to experiment with this new knowledge, encouraging you to run away with your own ideas as well as ours.
If you get stuck? We're here to help as much or as little as you desire.
Let's see what kind of trouble we can rustle up together!
