Vision Quest Painting retreat with Daniel Mirante

“It was truly a beautiful and transformational experience.”
Clive Hedger (student at retreat with Daniel, Art Pilgrim UK)

 “I enjoyed the format, level of technical teachings and presentations very much. I would highly recommend this experience to anyone who wishes to express themselves with a paintbrush… A truly healing and magical journey.” – Aoife Brown (student at retreat with Daniel, Art Pilgrim UK)

“For those of you with the ability to travel, there is a rare opportunity coming up to study oil & tempera painting with the modern master and fellow alchemist, Daniel Mirante.” Aloria Weaver (fellow Teacher at The Academy of Visionary Art Vienna)

Join us for an deep journey into the sacred traditions of art with visionary painter and experienced teacher Daniel Mirante, of the Vienna Academy of Visionary Art.

Realise your creativity this October within the beauty of Paradise One within a supportive group context, where we will quest to develop our art & inner vision, through the practice of painting, visualisation, and learning the language of symbols.

Daniel Mirante will share his detailed knowledge and practice of Mischtechnik (mixed technique of oils and egg tempera) which he learned from Brigid Marlin and Ernst Fuchs, as an ideal approach for bringing vision into form, and for engaging with painting as a meditative process of self-discovery.

The retreat will be a balance of “Techne” & “Psyche“. With Psyche, we will explore our intutive creativity. We will develop this exploration through Techne – old masters methods of composition and oil painting with egg tempera , in a guided process suitable for people of all levels of artistic experience.
