In this retreat we will use Chagall’s quotations and this exhibition to inspire our writing of all genres. Through creative writing exercises, exploring the Gardens, Tropical Conservatory, and Color of Dreams exhibition you will spend the day immersed in your own “happy brilliance” and leave with your impressions written on the page.
