WHAT IS A SCULPTURE RETREAT?
Imagine spending 10 days completely immersed in the creation process, with all of your daily concerns taken care of.
Your only focus is to improve your sculpting abilities each day in the studio with the guidance of your instructor and the inspiration of a live nude model.
All of your meals are deliciously catered by a French chef. In your free time you can enjoy the beautiful setting of our own private Chateau in the French countryside.
There is space for quiet reflection and for social conviviality. You emerge refreshed and rejuvenated, with new skills.
