Art Retreat Vreeland

Do you like to paint with a group of likeminded people?

Please join us for this fantastic Art Retreat at the Vecht river in the Netherlands.

Mon 3rd - Fri 7th of June 2024

Come and enjoy the landscape with lots of water at Vreeland and Nederhorst den Berg  (between Amsterdam and Utrecht).
 We are staying in a nice farmhouse with a jetty on the water.

Learn here how to capture nature in your own way.
This can range from large (landscape) to very small (flower details).
And from quite precise to (semi) abstract; you can choose which style appeals most to you.

We will work with all kinds of exercises to learn to paint more loosely. You can play with different styles to gain more and more clarity about your unique style. In the morning we sketchpaint outside as much as possible and take photographs to collect information that inspires us to create new work. In the afternoon we will work with this input on a larger format.

 You will learn how to use the landscape as a source of inspiration,
but also how to apply details from nature in interesting ways. Several beautiful animal portraits have been made in recent years, so you can also work with your own theme. Everyone is guided individually.

We discuss your work at the end of every day and on thursday we arrange an exhibition of the work that has been made. During the debriefing it is always very surprising to see how much is achieved by everyone in just four days.
The participants always experience these discussions as very inspiring and educational.

There are numerous possibilities for excursions around the farm, such as to Vreeland and Nederhorst Den Berg. Or a boat trip on the Vecht. There are so many great options in the area that we choose on the spot what suits our schedule best.

The workshops are also suitable if you have not been painting for very long.
I give a lot of tips about materials, mixing colors, lay-outs and perspective. There are also all kinds of fun assignments to challenge more experienced painters to new work.

In the reviews about my Art Retreats, the participants difference in experience is always valued as very inspiring.

It's super cool at these types of events that creative people connect with each other so quickly. So if you're a little nervous about traveling alone, don't worry: before you know it you'll have made new friends. The informal atmosphere on the farm certainly helps. And it is of course wonderful that after a few days you go home completely recharged with all kinds of new ideas.

For travel information please contact me, we can pick you up at trainstation Weesp.
You can also take a taxi from Amsterdam or rent a car.

Of course you can extend your stay in Amsterdam if you want to visit some of the famous museums.
If you want advice about that: please feel free to ask.

Paintworkshops from 9.30 - 17.00h. Tea/coffee will be ready from 9.00h.
Monday we will start at 11.00h
All the materials are included.
We use acrylic paint because it dries quickly and we work on different sizes of sturdy paper that does not bubble when getting wet.
Lightweight easels are available and you can bring your own favourite brushes and drawing materials (information about this will follow by email after registration).
About a month before the trip starts, I will create a private Facebook group where you can get to know the other participants and possibly make arrangements about traveling together.

A maximum of 10 people can participate in the painting workshops.
If the idea appeals to you, it is better not to wait too long to book, last year a number of my Art Retreats were booked up quickly. This is the only painting trip I am organizing in this region this year. If you live nearby you don't have to stay overnight, but the Art Retreat will only take place if at least 5 people stay overnight.

It is wise to take out travel and cancellation insurance in case you are unable to participate in the Art Retreat for some reason,

Paint sketches from different participants  to explore the landscape.


The Art Retreat was very professional. I learned a lot in creating landscapes with acrylic paint. Making quick sketches with a brush and paint helped me getting more loose. It stimulated me to make more abstract work and get new ideas. Being in nature heals and relaxed me so much.

I joined an Art Retreat with Marieke in June 2023 and it felt like a present to myself. She takes very good care of everything. The connectivity with the other participants was so nice. Everybody was very different, but creativity connected us in no time.

Although it was the first time I joined an Art retreat I never felt lost. Marieke helped me every time I had a question. Often even before I new I had a question :-)
