Excellent staff & faculty; I felt there was just the right level of structure + flexibility for the week. Laura was amazing at taking care of individual needs & keeping the energy/joy in the week. Tom & Mary Lou were able to accommodate all levels of experience; I learned so much. Who knew my iphone could do those things? And I am now painting again after a 15 year hiatus. Really liked that the photo/painting were set up so that we could do both, or as we chose. Facility was very comfortable in a lovely environment; more than I expected. And I loved the rest of the crew that attended! What a great group. Only recommendation would be a revised menu. There was tons of comfort food, especially desserts, but would take less quantity for some healthier fare. Maybe just different breakfasts. The lunch & dinners were fine. Breakfasts tasted a little like warm overs. I ended up with bagels and fruit. Overall, I want to go again.
