THE IDEAL SETTING
Our retreat offers a place to unwind in an idyllic setting where artists can indulge their creativity. The program is intended to give artists an opportunity to create in a rural and inspirational setting, while at the same time enjoy a great holiday relaxing, sightseeing, and enjoying all there is to do in our region.
Coffee Cove has been the focus of many photographers, painters and sketch artists over the years. The tranquility and the unspoiled rugged seascape brings out the creativity and enthusiasm of artists who happen by our little Newfoundland hamlet.
One such painter is Doug Downey, a Newfoundland native, residing in Springdale specializing in Impressionist Knife Painting. Doug has spent many days in Coffee Cove painting over the years and just recently introduced himself to me and expressed interests in bringing art classes to our retreat. He expressed how he felt about this small cove and how inspirational he found it to be and that he would like to share the inspiration and the experience with other artists or "artists wanta be's". Doug and I will be working together to bring art enthusiasts impressionistic art classes/workshops at the retreat.
