How did we make the art making portable? Well, we fashioned palette boxes filled with all the supplies needed to complete a workshop with the help of our neighbours. Sieverts Limited provided the wooden cigar boxes....
Here's just a few images from out in the field (literally) as well as at a farm, in the city, and at the beach. We are looking forward to continuing this series into the Winter months. Let us know what type of things you'd like to learn and share any feedback you may have if you took a workshop this year.
|Craig Baltzer and his crew took to the streets of Halifax and began drawing the interesting architecture|
|Sharon Cave and her class learned how to use pastels and were inspired by their trip to the Cole Harbour Heritage Farm.|
|Caitlin McGuire's class took the Ferry to Dartmouth to explore the waterfront.. Pictured here is one of our younger participants. What was so great about this series, is that it really appealed to all ages and levels!|
|Gordon MacDonald held two workshops...one in August and one in September. Although the first workshop at Lawrencetown Beach started out foggy, eventually the sun came out and what a marvelous day it was!|| |
|Gord and his students at Lawrencetown Beach|
|Then in September, we headed to another nearby beach...Rainbow Haven. And it was heaven!|
|What a beautiful day that was! Ah...September in Nova Scotia is just the bestest of the best!|
|One time we even painted at night, with Mary Garoutte! It was magical and fun and we can't wait to do it all again soon!|
