Diane Green is a renowned artist and creator of The Green Studio School, where her mission is to merge the visual arts with the healing arts.

She is offering a unique retreat opportunity in June 2019. This one-of-a-kind experience is especially designed so that you can restore, awaken and create.

The energy of St. Francis and the great painter Giotto will also be your guides. They will join us as magic makers that will lead you on a journey that will connect you to your source where your particular expression can be found.

Previous students have experienced …

  • A releasing of judgment to open to possibilities in their art that they never knew existed

  • Letting go of past fears

  • A feeling of delight in what effortlessly appeared in their mixed-media artwork

  • Experiencing a group where the lines of communication & support were far beyond their expectations

Are you ready to become quiet and listen? Come enter the magic!

Retreat Details

This will be a 14 day retreat from June 8-21, 2019.

This intimate gathering will be limited to a maximum of 10 students.


Luminous Assisi, Art and the Imaginal will be like no other retreat! Diane is bringing her exquisite energetic & artistic teachings which are designed to reach anyone from beginner to accomplished artist. She has a unique ability to see her students in the fullness of who they are, and connect them with magic & the imaginal.

You will be guided through a journey of opening to possibility, creativity, and mystery.

We'll gather in our own church with a beautiful vaulted ceiling complete with frescoes, to create our art. In the process of creating your artwork, you will connect inward to find your fullest expression. Using mixed media and paper, you will witness the outpouring of energy that will offer you a reflection of yourself.

Together we will access the ancient energies of Assisi, explore the history of St. Francis and his time, and connect you with your own nature. Together we will explore the limitlessness of what our art and we can become.

You will emerge refreshed, recharged, and prepared to welcome in new & exciting possibilities in your visual expression and how it pertains to your life's journey.

All of the lodging is located in charming buildings near the Assisi town center, within easy walking distance of one another and easy walking distance of the locations where we'll be gathering for our shared time together. Lodging is available in both hotels and apartments. Almost everywhere in Assisi seems to have spectacular views, but certain hotel rooms & apartments have especially nice views, and those are included in the Premium pricing.



All participants are responsible for the cost of their own meals. Breakfast is provided in many (not all) of the accommodations. We will have 2 or 3 group dinners together, in which we'll enjoy the sumptuous gourmet offerings available throughout Assisi.
