Colorado Mixed Media Painting Retreat This June!

Thank you for waiting for soooo long, I am sooo excited to share with you that it’s OPEN! My 2024 Colorado Mixed Media Painting Retreat!

Early bird pricing is available until March 7. Spots are LIMITED and are already filling, so don’t wait…

Here are all the glorious details!

I’ve designed this exclusive Retreat in the quiet mountain town of Ridgway, Colorado, where I’ll show you how to harness your playful, creative voice, discover your inspirations, and then transform them into beautiful paintings. 

Ridgway, Colorado is my home town, and a very special, gorgeous place. It is surrounded by 14,000′ mountains and has many natural Hot Springs.

Not only that, but the state of Colorado actually designated Ridgway as a “Creative Community”, and last year built a gorgeous new Art building just for creative events – and we’re get to paint there for 4 days! (It’s right across the street from coffee shops and restaurants, and even a little art gallery!) 

… Add to that mountain hikes, art journaling, a taste of yoga and even happy hours outside – and you’ll come home relaxed, inspired, and with a new vibrance to your art.

Spaces are limited so reserve your spot for this exclusive Colorado Mountain Art Retreat – June 6-10 in Ridgway, Colorado

Here are the highlights:

Spend four days and five nights relaxing and painting in the stunning mountain town of Ridgway, Colorado nestled in the heart of the San Juan Mountains in southwest Colorado. Reserve a room in the beautiful Chipeta Lodge, or you can grab one of the cute Airbnb’s in the quaint downtown. Connect with yourself and other creatives in a peaceful environment teaming with inspiring energy.

  • Recharge your excitement for your own art,
  • Discover a deeper connection with your spirit, and with nature
  • … and head home with a rested soul and newly inspired paintings.

In a spectacular setting and a warm, supportive environment, I’ll guide you on nature walks, mixed media tools, and creative play … 


Then I’ll show you how to translate all of your unique inspiration into beautiful mixed media paintings on canvas, that reflect who YOU ARE – and what’s lights you up.

PSS. Scroll down to hear what others say about art classes with Kellie….

“Kellie brought out the creative person who was hiding within me.   I had taken art lessons that focused on technique & skill that did not resonate with me. I wanted to be able to express my feelings on paper… Now I am able to put my soul on paper, be inspired and comfortable doing art by myself, and make art that I can proudly hang in my home.” – Kay


“Kellie is an art mindset healer, and creative art whisperer.” – Marisa


“There are so many ways Kellie has helped me but I would have to say the biggest area of growth for me is being comfortable painting for myself through the critic’s voice in my head. I have been creating for others for so long that I ignored my soul’s calling to create for me. In her Art Mentoring program I rediscovered my passion for making art.” – Louise


“I credit Kellie, if I hadn’t taken her Art Mentoring program I wouldn’t be where I’m at today as an Artist. I’ve been very busy with commissions. I am very thankful. Just sold a 40”x 30” acrylic on Gallery stretch canvas.” – Marilyn

“Everything Kellie promises was delivered, which is nothing short of miraculous. I wanted to make creativity my default again, as it was in the first half of my life, & I can honestly say that it is now. I discovered that it actually never went away; all I had to do was embrace it. Ideas are overflowing each day! Kellie’s course measurably loosened my style & made it possible to start painting from my heart or authentic self rather than my head or preconceived ideas.” – Kelly
