"O Canada: A unique art workshop in the Ottawa region"
August 12, 2023

Our one-day art workshop in the Ottawa region is more than an introduction to plein air painting, as you will learn to interpret and depict the landscape in a personal way. The reflection about the intertwining of two realities, nature’s and yours as the viewer, will lead to a synthesis of both on canvas. The day will start with a lecture and end with a gastronomic evening. For all levels and mediums. The price of CA $425 (around US$ 320) includes a lecture on the history of landscape painting, four hours of plein air painting, a five-course dinner including wine (with recipes from Let Go! The Artist's Way of Cooking), and two-way transportation from Ottawa.
Location: Ottawa, Canada
Instructor: Prof. Yves M. Larocque
Cost: US$ 320
Sponsor: Walk the Arts
