These painting retreats at Brentwood on the Beach are delightful. The inn is lovely, the atmosphere is relaxing, the surroundings are refreshing, and the creative spirit is awakened! Sunsets over the lake, rolling waves, spacious gardens, fabulous food, and lots of time to paint ... it doesn't get much better! NOTE: Your accommodation fee includes a Friday night wine & cheese welcome, then 5 wonderful meals plus 2 nights accommodation! This video will give you a taste of what's in store:

Brentwood is located half way between Grand Bend and Bayfield on the lake, approximately an hour's drive from London. Arrival time is 6:30 p.m. on Friday.

The Retreats have two cost components: an art fee, and the cost for accommodation and meals.

Art Fee

The art fee for the 3 days is $225. +  $29.25 H.S.T. = $254.25. This amount is payable directly to Cheryl O. To register and pay online using PayPal, click one of the buttons below. You won't need a PayPal account ... just a credit card. To learn more, see my Step-by-Step PayPal Tutorial.

To register by postal mail, follow the instruction on the right side of the Local Art Courses page.

Accommodation and Meals

This cost includes 2 overnights (Friday and Saturday), wine and cheese welcome Friday, 3 meals on Saturday and 2 meals on Sunday. The actual cost depends on which room you choose. Rooms are booked on a first-come, first-serve basis. Note: You get the best deal if you have someone to room share with. If this is an option that interests you, and no double occupancy rooms show below as available, please contact Cheryl for possibly making arrangements for a shared room.

Accommodation fees:

Shared room, double occupancy - needs to have 2 names at the time of booking $380. + HST each

Single person per room - $580. + HST

Note: Accommodation fees are paid directly to Brentwood at time of booking. Double rooms must have 2 names to be considered booked. Non-painting partners are welcome - they would not pay the art fee and would not participate in painting. Brentwood offers art retreat participants a special deal for an extra night including breakfast. Check this out with Brentwood if you are interested.
