Sometimes we can’t make the time to attend the 8-week GYST Workshop.
That’s why we decided to head out of town, roll up our sleeves, and get
to work! The GYST Weekend Workshop Retreat is an intensive workshop held
on the beautiful Central Coast in Pescadero, California. Get away and
get organized! This season’s retreat is supported in part by Costanoa
Costal Lodge & Camp, located just 30 minutes north of Santa Cruz.
Similar to our 8-week class, this retreat is for anyone who is looking
to kick-start their art career, get organized, and learn just about
everything it takes to make it in the art world. However unlike our Los
Angeles-based class, we will be learning and organizing all of this
vital information at lightning speeds in a relaxing and gorgeous
California resort. Learn how to make things happen for your career and
get one-on-one feedback from our knowledgeable GYST team in this weekend
get-a-way. Oh, and go on a hike, horse-back riding, or wine tasting.

Tuition: $480 for a weekend away to organize and relax!* You will leave
this amazing workshop with a wealth of art world knowledge and the tools
to keep it all organized!
