La Bonne Etoile Artists Retreat was specifically developed to assist artists and writers who would benefit from an experience in another culture, along with a time of seclusion and solitude. But through the years it has developed into more....a community of friends. La Bonne Etoile Blog has been designed to expand the richness of that community by continuing the quest to create and recreate together.

OPEN STUDIO ALUM REUNION MAY 27 – JUNE 17, 2018


2018OPENSTUDIO

There is a time for all things….and the time for a reunion is 2018! We know that your visits to La Bonne Etoile have always been driven by a little bit of guilt and a mission to fill every minute recreating and creating. But, you have already seen Troyes, visited Fontainbleau, Sens, jumped in the car to explore every minute you weren’t in the studio creating masterful works. Now, we want you to come back to experience things you missed and to re-experience the things you have missed since your departure!! We are inviting you to stay a third bonus week…..this means you have 10,080 extra minutes to fill with: sitting under the apple tree sketching, cutting and arranging some roses, watching Marc cook, taking that nap and that bubble bath, taking that bike ride to the Seine, watching the stars during a sky watch and still have time to catch up on all the news with your old roommate, take off to explore Bourgogne or Normandy…..returning to LBE with stories to tell. On top of this…glorious time in front of the easel…in the studio and in the fields.  Your work will soar to new heights!!
