      EVENT DETAILS
      P.AP.A. SPRING ARTIST CONSERVATION RETREAT

      As with all our retreats this is a fun, casual opportunity to learn more about the project, create art, enjoy fellowship and help conserve! This free event focuses on the site locations along the French Broad River that were depicted in the historic Picturesque America series from the 1870s.
      We will have guided tours to the places the original artists were in 1870 and give you the opportunity to follow in their brushstrokes and create your own pieces that can be submitted in our Fall exhibition. You can flow from site to site or if your time is limited join us when you can.

      ** This will be the last Retreat with group guided tours to the sites before final artwork submission of June 15th and the Fall PAPA Art Exhibition and Sale. **

      You are welcome to come for the day or stay overnight at the Hot Springs Campground. PAPA will have a site, if you want to camp with us for $10 a night. Alternative lodging options available.

      Can’t wait to have you join us to relax and be inspired by the riverside again.

      ************ PAPA Spring Retreat Schedule ************

      Please join us for a morning, a day, overnight, or the whole weekend. It is a flexible schedule but RSVP so we can meet you at the Artisun Cafe. Cell phone coverage is spotty at Hot Springs.
