Redux Contemporary Art Studio invites artists of all skills levels and interests to an artist retreat tucked in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina, Oct. 25-31.

Situated atop Pompey’s Knob at an elevation of 3,300 feet and covering 1,600 acres, WildAcres Retreat is true to its name. Visitors won’t be disturbed by typical city sounds or traffic. This property offers artistic sanctuary, allowing guests to tap into their creativity and explore their connection with the natural world.

Participants can choose from seven different class offerings led by experienced artists, including Plein Air & Studio Painting: A Hybrid Class with Greg Barnes, Batik Watercolor with Susan Vitali and more.

The cost is $825 for Redux members and $875 for nonmembers. Cost includes classes, lodging for six nights and 17 meals. Pricing is per person and each guest will have their own private room unless spouses, partners or travel companions choose to request a roommate.

Registration is open now through Oct. 1, but interested parties are encouraged to submit an application as soon as possible as space is limited.
