We recommend that you fly into Menara Airport (the call letters are RAK), as that is the closest airport to Marrakesh. While the room check in time for the rooms at Jnane Tamsna is 3:00pm, please note that you are more than welcome to arrive earlier and wait at the property until your room is prepared. As for the last day of the workshop, should you have a flight departure in the late afternoon or evening, you are more than welcome to wait at Jnane Tamsna so long as you are checked out of your room by 11:00am.

Workshop attendees will be taken to Jnane Tamsna via shuttle. The shuttle schedule will be provided once we are two weeks away from the start of the workshop. The trip from the airport takes about 30 minutes. Please note that shuttle service is only available from RAK; should you decide to arrive at Jnane Tamsna via a different method, you are responsible for arriving at Jnane Tamsna on your own.

Jnane Tamsna recommends having around $50/€47 -$60/€57 in the local currency (called dirham) on hand, which you can get at the airport once you land. Any more cash on hand is not necessary, as most places take credit and debit cards. That said, if you would like to have more of local currency on hand, you are more than welcome to do so.

Jnane Tamsna prides itself in offering quality, organic, healthy meals, served in a style influenced by Moroccan and Mediterranean flavors. Jnane Tamsna is also known for the freshness of its cuisine, using fruits and vegetables harvested from their very own gardens; additional ingredients are sourced from the local markets. And for those of you with any kind of dietary restrictions or food allergies, don’t worry – the kitchen at Jnane Tamsna can accommodate you.

As for the property, be certain to avail yourself of its many lush gardens and pools, so be certain to bring a bathing suit! On that note, please bring clothes suited for warm to hot weather. Temperatures in Marrakesh in October/November are expected to be around the mid 70’s to 80’s (around 27 degrees Celsius). Fortunately, all of the rooms are air-conditioned and there is wifi available throughout the property.

Art Materials
One of the hallmarks of any Art2life workshop is the Art Kit. This kit is sent to every Art2life workshop attendee, and it contains everything you need to enjoy the workshop. Please note that your Art2life Art Kit, if you are traveling to Jnane Tamsna by plane, MUST be checked as luggage; you cannot carry it onto the plane. To learn what each Art Kit contains, just click here. If there are art materials you would like to bring that are not included in the art kit, then we certainly encourage you to do so.

The weight of the art kit is around 14 lbs.

Art kits are typically sent out 1 month prior to the start of the workshop. If this schedule does not work for you, please let us know at your earliest convenience and it would be our pleasure to accommodate you if possible. On that note, for those of you attending the workshop who do not live in the United States, Nicholas will be bringing your art kit with him.
