“The OHCA retreats offer a rare, deepening experience. In the expanse of time, the quiet and the connection to friends working nearby, my confidence and powers of insight are strengthened.”

OHCA is once again offering a weeklong ARTIST RETREAT. This is a 5 -day opportunity for artists to work independently but in the company of other dedicated artists.  This is not a workshop, and there will be no instruction. What there will be is an opportunity for serious self-directed artists to work in a quiet atmosphere for a sustained period of time, working together but independently in the spirit of creativity.

The Retreat is open to anyone who agrees to some simple rules.  There is to be no talking except for quietly outside during the hours of 9 – 5 and no music is allowed except with earphones.   No visitors. Participants will be responsible for their own lunch and art supplies unless otherwise designated. Artists may leave their supplies and work set up during the week and will be required to clean up afterwards.

There is a limited amount of space available for this retreat.  There is space for 7 Visual Artists and 2 Writers. Spaces are given to those who reserve first and with fees paid.  If we find we have many more applicants than we have space, we may schedule another retreat.

Thursdays of each Retreat, after 5 p.m., there will be a pot luck dinner where everyone can socialize and share their work/process.
