The Grünewald Guild is nestled amidst sweet smelling ponderosa pine on the Wenatchee River in the Plain Valley, 14 miles northwest of Leavenworth, Washington. Snowcapped peaks, rushing waters and golden meadows welcome, inspire, and create an environment in which people come to learn, to grow, and to explore the relationship between art and faith.
In order to facilitate and serve as a resource for this exploration, throughout the year we offer various art classes and workshops, in particular our summer season which features 10 consecutive sessions of weeklong classes. When we do not have scheduled offerings our facilities are available to be booked for retreats, workshops, reunions, etc.
The Guild is unique in that the core staff members both live and work here, functioning as a purposeful and ongoing community. This creates a unique environment of welcome and hospitality for everyone who spends time here.
Seeking to embody a special sense of hospitality, we are an ecumenical Christian community that embraces people of all journeys and traditions, serving as a sanctuary for their exploration of art, faith and the mystery of creation. We strive to create a place of sanctuary and retreat for all who pass through our doors, walk our grounds or share with us in community life.
