Art Institute

The Art Institute at the

Jarbidge Canyon Retreat Center


Works in Progress: The Art Institute reflects our interest in the connection between creativity and healing (of humans and the planet).  Rooted in our sense that life is very narrowly defined by popular western culture, we wish to create the space for visitors to explore the creative spirit that resides within each of us.  We believe that out of this experience, unique to each individual, will come the answers, solutions, assistance and strength-of-purpose needed to transform our lives, our culture and our world.  Events and workshops that offer teaching, learning and practicing of creativity and the arts will be offered at The Art Institute.  Studio space is available and events will also be scheduled outdoors in this inspiring landscape.
