Our Mother Daughter Dream Art Retreat is designed for Mothers, Grandmothers, Sisters and Daughters of all ages!

Laugh, listen, and create as you participate in movement, writing and visual arts workshops that explore the concept of dreams. Moms – hear about your daughter’s hopes and dreams for the future. Daughters – discover that mom is not only “mom” but a woman just like you, with her own dreams and aspirations. Come join us at Appel Farm Arts and Music Center for a weekend packed with intentional opportunities for connection that include a Fused Glass Pendant Workshop, “Finders, Keepers: Making “Found” Poems from the Stuff of Our Lives”, “Plein Air Painting for Beginners”, A Digital Portrait Photography and Photo Transfer Workshop, a Saturday afternoon Wine Tasting for Mom, Sunday morning yoga, a Friday evening campfire with traditional songs and S’mores and a Saturday night St. Patrick’s Day Party with Ceili Dance Lessons and much, much more.

Additionally, guests will sleep in our cozy, heated dorm style bunks, fully equipped with mattressed bunk beds and modern bathroom facilities. (All you need is a sleeping bag and pillow.) Five organic and mostly vegetarian (and gluten-free if desired) meals will be served in our spacious dining hall which overlooks our very own organic garden.  Our caterer, Maureen Gregory, Mother and daughter participating in visual arts activity during Dream retreat.specializes in delicious and nutritious, fresh cuisine.
