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.
Artists-in-residence can trade retreat and studio time with teaching or helping us with operations. People who want to come and work and be a part of our community can contribute in many creative ways, such as gardening, housekeeping or maintenance.
The Guild was founded as a place where creative people could express their journeys of faith through artistic media. We have numerous art studios that allow people the time and space to do this, whether it be through an actual program offered by the Guild or a personal study or artist-in-residence opportunity. Although the Guild was inspired and operated from the Christian faith, you do not need to affiliate yourself with that faith to participate or feel at home here.
