SKILL SHARE SESSIONS 2023:
These short workshops are FREE for all members and are held in the CASA 2D classroom. Many of our amazingly talented members are volunteering to conduct these workshops for you. Please bring your own supplies. There will be limited supplies available, if someone wishes to try. We also accept art supply donations and welcome ideas and suggestions for future workshops. These are the upcoming workshops:
PLEIN AIR PAINTING/DRAWING 2022
Due to a cool May, we delayed our plein air visits to Nikka Yukko Garden ( https://nikkayuko.com/) until June. Weather permitting we will meet there on THURSDAY, JUNE 2 at 9 am when they open, and usually stay until noon. But you can arrive and leave whenever you like. You are welcome to join us there each Thursday in June.
Please visit their website for info on admissions to the Garden. If you plan to go there more than a couple of times in the next year, then we suggest you buy a season pass, which is good for a year. Attend the winter light festival! There are several types of season passes.
Update to Nikka Yuko summer drawing: a couple of us have decided to “draw” our way through the Garden this summer. Last week, on our June 10th trip, we stayed outside the entrance and drew it. Next week we’ll move one step further into the Garden and draw the area just inside the gate, and so on. As the weeks pass we’ll draw along the path by the water, past the bell, and so on…feel free to join us on this approach to the summer’s plein air at Nikka Yuko.
One of the fine paintings that hung in the Helen Schuler Nature Centre during August and Sept of 2021, in an exhibition, “The Four Seasons in the River Valley”. We are very grateful of the opportunity to do this, and thank the staff of the Nature Centre for their help in making this happen.
