Welcome to Empowered Artist Retreats

Welcome to Empowered Artist Retreats, where creativity knows no bounds and artistic souls find their truest expression! Join our intimate community of Empowered Artists, and together, let's embark on a journey of self-discovery and artistic liberation.

Our retreats are not just about acrylic pouring techniques; they're about reconnecting with your inner selfrediscovering lost passions, and nurturing your creative spirit in a safe, supportive space.  So I invite you to immerse yourself in my personally led acrylic pouring workshops, designed to ignite your artistic passion and unleash fearless expression.

Amidst the scenic beauty of Utah, find inspiration in the vivid hues of the sunset, the calming rustle of leaves, and the quiet moments by the bonfire under the vast, starlit sky. 

In our retreats, you'll experience...

Artistic Self-Discovery Workshops

Our self-discovery workshops will delve deep into the mesmerizing world of acrylic pouring and mixed media,  helping you find your unique artistic voice. 

Through laughter-filled evenings around the bonfire, quiet moments of meditation in nature's embrace, and the freedom to express without judgment, you'll find solace, inspiration, and genuine joy.  

Amidst the rustle of leaves and the crackle of bonfires, you'll let go of fears, guilts, and inhibitions, allowing your creativity to flow effortlessly. You'll reflect on your emotions, experiences, and insights, weaving them into your artwork with reflective journaling prompts tailored to deepen your connection with nature and your artistic expression.

Come, immerse yourself in the transformative power of art, reconnect with your innermost thoughts, and leave our retreats not just as empowered artists, but as liberated souls ready to embrace life's canvas with newfound courage and creativity.

Your empowering artistic journey starts here!

Meet Your Hostess

Hey there, lovely soul! I'm Loida Fajardo, the creative spirit behind Empowered Artist Retreats. It's our cozy haven of creativity, where we dive into self-discovery surrounded by Utah's nature and the best company – yours.

I'm passionate about art and love sharing it with incredible souls like you. That's why I created this retreat – a place where acrylic pouring, mixed media, and mindfulness collide in the most wonderful way, unlocking your inner artist.

But it's not just about paint on canvas here. Oh no! We're talking about tapping into our deepest emotions, finding inspiration in the rustle of leaves and the gentle whispers of the wind, all in an intimate setting filled with colors, laughter, and those quiet moments that speak volumes.

Our retreats are not your ordinary workshops. They're like a weekend getaway with your favorite pals – around bonfires, sharing stories, playing games, and watching colors blend magic on canvas. For me, art is all about connections, feelings, and beautiful shared experiences.

Come, let's explore colors and emotions together. Whether you're a beginner or seasoned artist, join us in this enriching adventure. Let's create art, memories, and a whole lot of laughter together!
