Painting by the Lake

What are the ingredients for a perfect day? Painting, relaxing, being with nature, swimming, and chocolates.

Choose a custom theme with demos and content that suits your group. All art supplies are provided. Make time for fun, dismiss your inner critic, and focus on the art-making experience rather than the product.

Fool around with ideas and art materials, and bring more joy and beauty into your life. All you have to do is show up!

Location: Grand Lake, Quebec (1/2 hr. from Byward Market).

Open Studio Time

How do you spell joy? artPlay!

Begin developing your own style in life – just like on the canvas. Easy, fun painting techniques and demos are included.

Too often we want to be experts, which usually means criticism of ourselves and others. Make time to reconnect with what matters most. Feel rejuvenated while building foundations for a better self.

The content is group-specific and can be formal or not. Groups of 4 minimum. No art experience is needed.

“I attended Louise’s painting workshop to reconnect with an ongoing inner desire to create art. It was exactly what I needed, a full day of exploring colours, shapes, and methods… The experience allowed me to embrace a part of me I had been ignoring for years and to discover how I express myself through paint.

 

I would recommend this workshop to anyone who feels the need to make art and connect to nature.”

Passion on a Lay-Away Plan

When it comes to doing things we love, how many times do we have to hear ourselves say “I’ll do this when…” or “I wish I had time for this,” before we actually do what brings us joy?  Or do we even get to it at all?  In the busy lives we lead, being in the here and...
