Samish Island Paint Out
by Yael Zahavy-Mittelman
Three times a year, I feel I am the most fortunate artist on this planet. For few wonderful days, each time, I come to Samish Island, to paint. The wonderful kitchen stuff, spoil us with amazing food. They even do the dishes. The view is breathtaking, and the company is generous and inviting. It is always exciting to see my artists friends I did not see in a while. The most important experience is the opportunity to paint with no interruptions. If you are new to the art process, you will have so many teachers to learn from. We are all always learning, exploring and trying to solve our own art challenges. Here we can have time to do that together. Sometimes we have art workshops, other days we might have a Windsor & Newton representative to introduce us to new materials and challenges us using the new materials for an art competition. We have movie nights and at times options for massage treatment or tarot readings or slide shows. I have been coming here for several years, three times a year, and it is an experience like no other.
Join us. It is so much fun. Lots of inspiration and talent to learn from. If that is not enough, join us for a stroll on the beach or enjoy the wild life of eagles and herons, or just read and relax. It is all up to you. To join you do not even have to be NWWS member.
