Art Journaling the Magic Vacation Retreat November 2023

November Art Journaling the Magic 2023

This retreat is now sold out!

The best day ever has arrived! This all-inclusive vacation is the ultimate Art Journaling the Magic experience. This has been a dream many years in the making. It includes EVERYTHING once you arrive: accommodations, meals and snacks, journaling kits, one on one time with Tangie, live demos, guest teachers, and a plethora of art journal parties. PLUS, an amazing array of house amenities such as: arcade games, heated pool, hot tub, fully covered outdoor spaces, theater room, TONS of seating space to chat or journal, and much more! 

We will have structured activities planned throughout the morning and evening, with suggested/light activities in the afternoons. This will allow time from approx. 11 AM to 6:30 PM to optionally visit the Disney parks with fellow students or choose to hang out at the house with us and play. You DO NOT need a Disney park ticket to participate in this retreat. 

The party starts at 6 PM on Wednesday, November 1st, and ends at 9 AM on Sunday, November 5th, so there will be lots of time on those two days to go to the parks if you don’t want to go during the retreat. 

We want to be able to provide you with as much time as possible to plan for this amazing adventure. Use the dropdown menu on the [checkout page] to pick the vacation package you'd like to put your non-refundable deposit* on. We'll hold your spot, and you can make payments** or pay in full by August 1st, 2023.

You will also receive a PDF with access to our exclusive retreat communication clubhouse.

*Your deposit is non-refundable as we are holding a spot for you, and there is a significant amount of admin time that goes in behind the scenes. If, for any reason, you can't attend the vacation retreat, fees are non-refundable unless another student (not currently registered) is found to take your spot. If a replacement is found, you will be refunded whatever you have paid minus the $400 non-refundable deposit (per person).

**You can pay in full by August 1st, 2023 with no additional fee. There is an additional $50 fee to make as many payments as you wish until August 17th, 2023. 

If you wish to attend the parks, tickets and meals consumed outside the vacation home are your individual responsibility and aren't included.
