About The Retreat

Join Mindy Johnstone in the heart of the Rocky Mountains at the luxurious Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise. This weekend retreat is designed to reconnect you with nature through art and mindful practices. With over 20 years of teaching and inspiring students through art and yoga, Mindy welcomes guests of all levels of experience. With 4 painting sessions, participants have the opportunity to work with acrylics, watercolour, pen and ink. Discover new ways to record your travels by creating a visual journal of your experience. The magnificent landscape has a bounty of inspiration to keep an artist musing for hours. Sessions take place en Plein Air, where guests paint as many master artists have in the past on the shores of Lake Louise.

A mindful painting retreat nurtures your creative spirit and promotes peace and connection. Attend on your own, with friends or meet other like minded guests who share the love of landscape, art and wellness.
