Singing songs around the campfire just got whipped! Spend a few days in Laguna Beach dabbling, gabbing and enjoying the colorful camaraderie of artists this September!

American Artist magazine, the country’s oldest and leading monthly magazine for representational and figurative artists, is the organizer of the retreat and its editors will also be active participants and hosts throughout the week. This year, it is being held at Laguna Cliffs Marriott Resort & Spa, a coastal retreat perched high atop the cliffs of Dana Point, overlooking the Pacific.

Weekend with the Masters is designed to give practicing artists, art collectors, and art enthusiasts who are passionate about traditional art the chance to study and paint with some of the top representational painters of our time, as well as receive personal feedback and instruction on their work in a friendly, laid-back retreat setting. These master workshops will be complemented by demonstrations, lectures, special presentations, and panel discussions led by the master instructors and guest speakers during the day and evening.

Weekend with the Masters: September 23-26, 2010

Location: Laguna Cliffs Resort & Spa
