ART ON THE GO Workshops are Coming!

That's when we partner with Sievert's and re-purpose wooden cigar boxes into mobile palette boxes to take the art on the go!

Storytelling with Art : Deb Bromley
Tuesday, June 18th, at the MARITIME MUSEUM OF THE ATLANTIC, $50
 We are excited to announce the first workshop lead by Deb Bromley. Deb loves people watching and in the summer months she draws her inspiration from frequent visits to the beach. So we thought we'd take you on all on a journey of learning about her practice of narrative art with a drawing  and painting workshop-where we'll watch people and learn how to tell YOUR story.

Painting with Light : Mary Garoutte
Wednesday, June 26th, 6:30-8:30pm, $50
Location to be determined soon!

 Mary Garoutte is back again this year with a new workshop, geared for those that have a little bit of experience painting however if you are just a beginner you should do alright. We are still confirming the class content, but we can tell you that students will be painting with acrylic with the focus being on how to use light in your work and the use of specific colours to accomplish this. Our inspiration will be a market setting. Mary is a spectacular teacher and has taught a number of workshops with us in the past as well as teachers privately.

Spot of Colour : Gordon MacDonald

Sunday, July 28th,  1:30-3:30pm, Rainbow Haven Beach $65

 Gordon MacDonald is known to many local collectors and artists alike for his brilliant paintings inspired by what's around him, with particular interest in big skies and landscapes filled with colour and clouds. Often referred to as the "sky guy", Gordon will teach you how to begin looking at a painting using a limited palette of white, burnt sienna and ultramine blue....and ONE spot of colour.
