Collection: Retreats & Workshops

APRIL 21-23rd, 2023

Are you feeling like your creativity has burned out and you’researching for that fire to re-kindle that creative desire? I hear almost weekly from fellow Creatives how they have become inspired by following The Painted Pinto's creative vision and seeing the transformation in every piece from the ordinary into the extraordinary.

 So, I am very excited to be offering you this exclusive insider workshop that so many of you have been waiting for! I do believe this is exactly what you are needing to fill that void in your creativity with a fire and light your inspirational path. This workshop will be instructing you in the process of two creative techniques done The Painted Pinto way.  While attending Fire in the Hole you will learn how to prep and base coat an ordinary piece, preparing it for the transformation process for hand painting, along with creating a custom stencil, apply a gorgeous TPP decoupage paper and finish it out with antiquing and embellishment.


You say “What about upholstery???  Well hang on because you are going to experience the nail biting, cringing work of stripping down a piece that's ready for the dumpster. By the end of the workshop, you'll understand the process and be able to step back and say, "Wow is this what I've been afraid of?" You'll understand how easy it was with my simple upholstery step by step process.  

Fire in the Hole will be an amazing chance to fellowship with like-minded Creatives and meet some of the best Furniture Creatives and Canvas Artist in the United States.  This will also be a "Hands On" workshop for you to be able to paint like me and get the fill of hammer to tack.


After full day of our creative juices flowing, we will relax with a bonfire and enjoy a little local entertainment. There will be lots of giveaways and on Sunday we will be raffling off one piece that someone will be going home with (shipping if needed will be at the expense of winning ticket holder).

This workshop will also include a scrumptious breakfast, hearty lunch, and banquet on Saturday. Sunday will start a country breakfast and a gourmet lunch mid-day, plus a variety of delicious snacks and drinks throughout the day.

Lodging, Transportation and Flights are NOT included in the price of ticket, but we do have limited sleeping accommodationsfor purchase separate from workshop event that are offered at a very reasonable price and on a FCFS basis.

PLEASE come with an open mind and heart ready to meet new friends you will cherish for a lifetime and open your creativeheart and mind to new inspirational learning.
