In this weekend retreat - our very first in-person event - we will unwind, explore, and get to know one another better!
We're taking this community experience offline and into the studio in St. Petersburg, Florida for a hands-on opportunity to learn and discover together.
Get to know your fellow Circle sisters and kick off the weekend with a waterfront cocktail! 5-7 PM in Downtown St. Petersburg
Spend the morning learning to take dreamy reference photos in the wild, followed by an intuitive color workshop at the Studio. Finish the day with ArtWalk and cocktails!
Sunday is all about letting loose and leaving bright, bold marks on the world! We will get in touch with our inner creatives and paint something new together.
St. Petersburg, Florida is a charming, small city with TONS to do. Shelby Dillon Studio is only 5 minutes from Downtown, where there are world-class art museums, over 75 galleries, the stunning pier, live music venues, and an array of delicious dining options. Just 10-15 minutes west, you'll hit the beach, which features superfine white sand and warm Gulf water. November is a phenomenal time of year to be here - the weather is warm, dry, and sunny.
The closest major airport is Tampa International Airport (TPA). Some smaller airlines also fly into St. Pete / Clearwater (PIE), so it’s worth a look, especially if you are joining us from a more remote area.
The Studio is a few blocks east of 1-275 Exit 20 North / 21 South.
The cost of all activities is $275.
The full amount is required to secure your spot. Registration is nonrefundable as we are reserving spaces and materials now for all those who sign up. Lodging, transportation, and meals (except for lunch on Saturday) are your responsibility. The $275 covers space rentals, cocktail hour, picnic lunch and all supplies for the retreat - plus a couple extra surprises!
We can accommodate a maximum of 40 individuals for this weekend retreat. There will be an overflow list and in the event that someone cannot attend, they may transfer their registration to you. Thank you for your understanding!
