Fall Artist's Retreat Planned
Join your fellow artists for a painting retreat at Dutch Mountain Ranch near Llano. We've reserved the weekend of Oct. 2-4 for our Hill Country getaway. The ranch is 1,245 acres located in a very remote scenic area 22 miles southwest of historic Llano, Texas. Scenery includes sandy creeks, ponds, open grasslands, granite outcroppings, oak stands and views of surrounding mountains. If you're strong and adventurous, hike to the summit of Dutch Mountain and enjoy the wonderful panoramic views of Enchanted Rock and the surrounding Hill Country.
The lodge and cabin have a variety of sleeping arrangements and fully equipped kitchens. We will need to bring our food because its a long haul into Llano. Lodging can accommodate 13, but day visitors are welcome. Because of the limited lodging, we are limiting the weekend to members only (except for day painters) for now. Don't delay in making your plans to join this special artist's weekend.
October 2-4, 2015 $100 per person - Members only for now.
