painting retreat kingston ontario


Kick-off your summer with a fresh start!

Saturday, June 22nd 10am-1pm

During this half-day weekend retreat Danielle will share her insights on embracing your own creativity and discovering your inner artist, while soaking in the health benefits of regular art-making!

Referencing vibrant florals and greenery, find inspiration and develop your skills. Practice and understand the process of combining multiple techniques and approaches to produce a successful painting from start to finish. Learn how to work from your own reference material, what methods you can use to transfer your image, and how to create a pleasing composition. Become proficient at mixing colours and transparencies, learn how to embrace mistakes, and develop your own visual language, and become more confident with the medium.

Enjoy live painting demonstrations, painting exercises, and utilize free time to work through your own painting, with one-on-one personal guidance and feedback from Danielle. Bring your questions, come with an open mind, and prepare to elevate your creativity this Summer
