Due to changing circumstances we will not be running Artbreaks in the foreseeable future.
Our heartfelt thanks to the wonderful people who have taken part over the years.
Artbreak has been a wonderful experience for us and this has been a difficult decision to make.
For any future alternative option for an art retreat in the Bay of Plenty area contact Creative Bay of Plenty. All the very best for your creative futures.
Naomi, Heather and Pippa.

September 2018 Newsletter

Published 02 September, 2018 by Naomi in About Art Break

Hi all,

Hope all’s well and you’re all, like ourselves, looking forward to Spring and Summer!!

Here’s an update to keep you in the loop regarding upcoming Artbreaks and vacancies that may well lure you into a weekend away of fun, frivolity and art!  To summarise, there are potentially 1 or 2 vacancies for November this year and up to 4 vacancies for February next year.  Please see below:

Upcoming dates and vacancies:

October – Heather and I are having a second trial of Artbreak2 on the heels of a successful first trial for returning Artbreak guests.  We’ll keep you posted if we do make it a regular break.  It is an Artbreak with a different programme and venue but that’s all I can say at this point….

November – We have one space available in the Cubist room.  i.e. the small bunk room.  It would be on the bottom bunk for the total of $390 for the weekend.  See website for photo.  It is a comfortable bed and there is a reading light for those who don’t use the latest kindle.  If you did want to share with a friend you could flip a coin for who would use the top bunk.  The cost per person would then be $310 for the weekend.  You would be sharing the weekend with 3 lovely women, one of whom has been before and is returning to share the weekend with her sister and friend.  

December and January – we don’t have Artbreaks during these months as is busy for everyone.

February – there is one keen traveller booked from America.  He has booked the Frida Kahlo room and so there will be spaces in both the Impressionists room (single for $450 and share price for $370) and the Cubist Room as above.

March – is fully booked by a keen group of friends and family.

If any of these dates appeal please book as soon as you’ve decided through our website or contact us by return email and we’ll personally explain the process.  

We will keep you posted once we have updated our next Artbreaks for April (which may be a bit tricky for us so may not go ahead), and May BUT if you are keen to make a booking for these months, do let us know and we could see if there is any possibility of working around your dates too.  

Any questions, do ask.

Bye for now

Kind regards
