Art Retreat in the Desert


THANKS FOR JOINING US LAST FEBRUARY IN TUCSON! Stay tuned – We are closely monitoring the Covid-19 situation  and will bring you another fun Desert Retreat as soon as it is safe and healthy to do so!

The Desert – 2020

Held last February during the Tucson Bead and Gem Shows, the retreat offered more than 80 classes held over six days that ranged from metalsmithing to art jewelry classes. And in true Vivi Magoo style, we brought in the best artist-instructors who provided excellent teaching in combination with a welcoming, inspirational setting.
