What you'll do
I live right on the water overlooking the beautiful Halifax Harbor and skyline, which is what we will paint. No prior painting experience necessary. This experience will start outdoors, so be prepared to walk, with the second half of the experience spent painting indoors. In a small group setting (3 max), we will meet and greet at my residence in downtown Dartmouth for tea and snacks, and then go outside for a walking tour of the waterfront to sight-sketch our compositions, followed by painting a guided, small acrylic painting in my private studio afterwards that you can take home as a unique souvenir of Halifax! All skill levels are welcome. Wilbur; my friendly orange cat will be with me to greet you at meet-up time. Please notify of any animal allergies.
