CreArte Retreat, January 2004

"I loved the generous and hospitable spirit, the beautiful setting in Zancudo, the inspiring art classes and support from CreArte, the meals (they were fantastic!), the pace and outreach into the local area and life, the rooms (open, light, airy and well designed).

"Patrick Fanning is a great teacher who lets students fulfill their own potential. The workshop organizers were very reponsive to our needs. I had a great time!"

"Nice People- in charge and as participants. Loved the Ocean- the breezes-the food- the excursions. Great relaxation and good positive teaching"

"I have taken classes from several other artists and Patrick is the best organized and gives clear presentations and personal assistance."

"I'd love to do it again! There is high spirit and energy the the CreArte people!"

"Painting in the tropics is such a rewarding experience- A vacation and avocation combined!"

"I loved the camraderie, Patrick Fanning's workshops, the meals, the fun, the beach and all the opportunities to paint!"

Steps from the Hotel, our Private Beach. The water was 85 to 90 degrees!

Patrick gets a much deserved kiss!

CreArte Retreat, February 2002

"I enjoyed every moment of my CreArte Costa Rican experience! Patrick Fanning, Ashlie Gaos, Cynthia Kennedy, and Erin Prucha, our workshop instructors and organizers, were all such supportive, knowledgeable teachers as well as accomplished artists. I learned so much while having a great time in a beautiful setting with interesting companions. The lush tropical scenery, ocean views, and wildlife provide a multitude of subjects to paint and also many activities and things to see and do when one needs a break from painting. I can hardly wait for the next retreat! I hope to make CreArte workshops in Costa Rica a yearly adventure."

"CreArte 2002 rates a 10- the setting, the classes, the extra activities, the accomodations, the ambience -a workshop masterpiece!"
