“The Haramara retreat was amazing beyond words. Nick is an incredible teacher and a very special human being. I am very interested in signing up for a repeat Haramara retreat in the future.”
– Linda Wallace, attended December 2014 Haramara Art2Life Workshop
Throughout the week, we will work on a series of small paintings on wood panels, often working on several pieces simultaneously, which leaves little time to worry about success or failure. We will also explore how themes of change and spontaneity enable us to create our own unique artwork, and illuminate life lessons inherent in the creative process. We seek to engage both sides of the brain, and invite in mistakes, intuition, and spontaneity. We will explore the six Art2Life Creativity Principles: value, design, color, texture, risk, and soul. Generous time will be given for experimentation with new tools, mediums, and techniques, and as the class progresses we will create a fertile environment for art making with in depth demonstrations, music, and one on one instruction.
“This workshop offers a systematic approach to the basics of painting for everyone. I felt like I learned more in this week than I did in the entire process of getting a bachelors degree in art.”

“The art2life workshop at haramara was exactly what I needed. a tranquil environment where time slowed down and i got to fully immerse into my creativity. as well as laugh, connect and completely relax (white sands, clear water, good people, interesting dinner discussions… on and on). Nicholas has a true gift of holding such a wonderful space for anyone who has a desire to explore and get playful with their creativity. fine-tune their voice. push through their blocks. learn new techniques.”
