This retreat has already started, if you would still like to take part then please contact us.

Creativity is a gift from God, so in the relaxing atmosphere of Penhurst you will be able to focus your creativity on working up a painting (or paintings) of your own choice in the medium of watercolour or mixed media if preferred.

The retreat is suitable for those with limited knowledge of watercolour as well as the more experienced. You will need to bring your own art materials, but some paper will be available. You also wish to mix your watercolour with other mediums or collage. Viv Walkington will be on hand each day to help you achieve the result you`re hoping for.

Viv feels blessed that she has always been able to have creativity in her life, starting out in advertising, she worked as a Graphic Designer and Art Director, currently she is primarily a watercolour artist, who is currently drawn to using watercolour in botanical art, but she also enjoys working in other media, such as collage, fabric, felt, acrylic and gouache. She enjoys teaching others, exploring the ways in which individual creativity can be used to unveil the spiritual being within. Every picture does indeed tell a unique story.

Viv says: "When we start with God as the supreme creator, the gift of our creativity can be used to acknowledge Him in the joy of our own creating; where we are able to experience such gratefulness for the gift in the slowing down, looking, and expressing what we see in our unique creative way".
