Art Retreat on the Prairie

Tuesday, November 1st – Sunday, November 6th, 2016

Come join us where it all began! Did you know that Art Retreat at the Prairie was our inaugural event? It’s a fan favorite due its peaceful, serene setting on the prairie of rural Texas. This year we will be right in the heart of Round Top, TX at Henkel Hall. We have thoughtfully created a schedule of classes that will satisfy the creative soul – from mixed media art to jewelry classes, there is something for everyone!

Art Retreat on the Prairie is located in Round Top, Texas, located at the eastern edge of the Texas Hill country. It’s about a 2-hour drive from Houston, and about a 90-minute drive from Austin. If you are flying, we recommend that you fly into Austin. It’s easier to get to Round Top from Austin than from Houston.

Round Top is a friendly small town in Texas, said to have received its current name from “the house with the round top”–an early stagecoach stand. We checked with the Round Top Chamber of Commerce, and they said that one of their people just recently went door-to-door and counted 90 residents. We believe there are at least triple that number of longhorn steer living in the town. It’s a beautifully sublime location to host an equally quaint and inspiring retreat such as ours.

Henkel Hall is where we host our retreat in Round Top. Intimate. Flexible. Authentic. Completed in 2013, Henkel Hall is designed to create a memorable event experience that will last a lifetime. Classrooms are large and accommodating for students and instructors alike.

You may choose to ship your things ahead of time to Round Top. Here is the address for Henkel Hall. Make sure to put your name on your boxes so we know where to direct them when they are delivered. We would appreciate it if you would time delivery one day prior to the start of your first class.
