August 21, 2021
 

A one-day art workshop in the Ottawa region open to artists of all levels and mediums (oils, acrylics, watercolors).

A reflection on the intertwining of two realities, the one offered by nature and your own as the viewer, leading to a synthesis of both on canvas. Price of 425 CAD (around US$350) includes two-way transportation Ottawa-Val-des-Monts-Ottawa, an art history lecture, three to four-hour plein air painting coaching, and an outdoor five-course gourmet dinner including wine.
