Art Retreat

The Art Retreat provides a place for creative individuals, whether singly or in a group, to work on whatever discipline they choose on beautiful Keuka Lake, located in the Finger Lakes Region of upstate New York. For a nominal fee, you and your class can be inspired at Sunny Point, The Arts Center of Yates County’s lakeside property.

Artists stay at and use the Sunny Point campus for a 3-day, 5-day, or 7-day period of time. Cost is determined by the length of stay. This lakeside cottage provides accommodations for up to 6 individuals, including linens and a full kitchen.  Studio space is available in the red barn. All accommodations are offered on an ‘as available’ basis. For more information and to discuss availability, contact the Arts Center at (315) 586-8226 or email artscenteryates@gmail.com
