Art Retreats

time away to relax, restore and reconnect

Our aim is to refresh you from all cares of the everyday in order to release the real you. Relaxed. Restored. Reconnected. Your encounter begins with a gentle day of decompression from the whirlwind, includes ‘Creative Breakthrough and Release’ sessions, practical and interactive prophetic art workshops where you will explore working directly from your spiritual imagination and learn how to develop your own language of creativity.

Enjoy the difference

Creative Hearts Art Retreats are powerful, transformational, life-enriching experiences. Our retreats provide an inspirational artistic adventure where renown prophetic artist Wendy Manzo and creative coach Andy Hamish Smith will take you on a journey to understand your intuitive process and develop your innate talents.

It’s more than art! We aim to provide you with much more than an art class in a beautiful relaxing atmosphere, but also to ensure you return home with a greater sense of who you are, equipped with skills for a lifelong creative journey. Maybe you’ve never had the chance to explore your creative side and you don’t know where to start.

We create personalized retreat sessions with healing and empowering experiences that are completely focused on your particular needs and distinctive journey. We do not use a cookie-cutter one-size-fits-all approach. Your desires and needs are unique at this point of time in your life, and since our focus is on you, in a private oasis, your Creative Hearts retreat experience is more impacting than a standard retreat, resulting in positive and long-lasting changes.

No experience needed

Whether you are a beginner, a seasoned artist, or you have never painted before, you will be empowered with new insights, renewed confidence, and trust in your ability to paint directly from your spirit. You will discover and conquer your personal challenges to pure expression.

Your creativity will surprise you, as we focus on the mysterious process of transforming inspirational ideas into tangible paintings. You will be enriched and strengthened to release joy and freedom into your art and other aspects of your life. Taking this ‘time out’ for yourself will open your passion, encourage a deeper sense of possibilities, and bring you more wonder, enthusiasm and childlike joy.

Your creativity will flourish as you truly relax away from the usual distractions. Our intimate small groups of 4 – 8 ensure supportive friendship and personal professional guidance, freely given throughout this unforgettable time.

The value for the money you’re investing in yourself is ultimately more productive than a luxury holiday or art group retreat, as we delve into what is really going on within your own creative mind.

The deep true you

It’s easy to get caught in the treadmill of things to be done and lose touch with the core creativity that is natural to your spirit. If you’ve lost the richness of the life of an artist, and no longer live in spontaneous curiosity, discovery and play, and you’ve become exposed to stress, anxiety, and other afflictions that burden your delight in daily life, perhaps it is time to make a creative escape and reconnect with the deep true you. “Only the genuine true you makes art that impacts.”

Or perhaps you simply want to retreat to a quiet beautiful place to explore and nurture your creative gifts, or take the time to rekindle a longing to create what has been waiting patiently for you to ‘do something for yourself’.

Regardless of where you are in your creative journey, when you come away from the bustling crowds and join us for a Creative Hearts Art Retreat in one of the world’s most beautiful tranquil locations, whether it is in Bali, (5-star Villas), Port Douglas (Nth Qld tropical rainforest), or Gold Coast (hidden beachside-hinterland), you will uncover your God-given creative potential.
