Eco Art, Green Crafts & Artist Retreats Artist & Writer Retreats Now that Winter is coming on, the idea of a Balinese Artist Retreat sounds amazing. These 2 great artist/writer/yoga retreats are incorporating Earth Paint into their natural and holistic offerings. The Meditative Arts School has a Meditative Art & Yoga Retreat in Ireland that sounds incredible. They offer daily painting, creative movement, yoga, sculpting, writing, and meditation. They use only nature-based art supplies. The Wellness Immersion Retreats incorporate writing, painting, and yoga for their retreats in Bali, Tuscany, and Big Sur, CA. Earth Paint 1 Year Anniversary!

This week marks the one year anniversary of Earth Paint! We can’t believe how much we’ve learned after diving in head first last November. We feel so incredibly grateful to all of the amazing people who have helped us in so many ways to get this small business off the ground.
