What is the Teacher Art Retreat?

In the words of the original song we created at the Summer 2012 TAR, Let’s Create and Celebrate!

First and foremost, this retreat is for YOU.  You will be creating, learning and bonding with other teachers who share the same love of education that you have!

Each workshop session is hands-on and fun.

Time each day will be spent also on how what you learn in each workshop can be used in your teaching.

Start each day with coffee, muffins and an energizing warm-up.  Each day you will have studio time to work on the focus art project.  In addition, you will attend one of the other three workshops.  Everyone will attend all workshops!  No one will miss ANY of the fun!  Lunch will be provided each day as well as some special treats (door prizes too)-just for YOU!

Telling a story in movement thinking of beginning, middle and end.

Listening to an inspiring workshop presented by a fellow teacher.

This is the kind of retreat where you can relax and enjoy yourself while you learn strategies to bring to your teaching!

 Check out the location of our Teacher Art Retreat

We have a new location!  It’s bright, it’s quiet (it’s ACed) and it will be a wonderful place to retreat!

St. James Lodge in Hampton, NH

77 Tide Mill Rd Hampton, NH 03842

The inside entrance to Barker Hall











There is plenty of space for eating and creating.















Outside pictures will be forthcoming when the snow melts a little bit.  There is a large yard, a patio gathering area and a great view of the marsh.  (Not too mention a great kitchen and sound system!)  This will be a lovely site for our Retreat!


Coming from far away and need a place to stay?  I’m working on getting some deals for the retreaters with local hotels and B&Bs, so stay tuned.  If you want immediate information when it becomes available, please send Elizabeth an email.
