Date Night at the Art Gallery

Bring your partner, spouse, significant other or best friend to our new creative Date Nights. Each Date Night will focus on a different mixed-media project.  We supply the materials, the inspiration, the tunes, and something to sip and nibble.  You just need to be ready to enjoy a fun and creative evening out.

Join us for a Friday Date Night at the Art Gallery on one (or more) of the following dates, from 7-9pm:

February 15th - SOLD OUT Van Gogh inspired landscapes. Explore tools and techniques, get messy and have fun with acrylic paint on canvas. Using brushes, palette knives, forks and fingers explore colour and movement to create a Van Gogh inspired work on canvas.

March 22nd - SOLD OUT Plasticine PaintingTry your hand at making art using plasticine on wood canvas. This is a very fun, hands-on style of art making.  Explore making art that has dimension and texture using a variety of tools and techniques. Each participant will create their own work and don’t worry, we will have lots of inspiration images to work from.

April 12th -  WAIT LIST Watercolour & Ink.  Have fun with liquid watercolours while learning about the tools and techniques to create beautiful background images. Using black inks we will then add personal elements into the foreground to create a number of smaller works - if you can doodle, you can do this!  Each participant will create a number of smaller works that can be framed, made into cards, bookmarks or combined into a larger work.

May 17th SPACES AVAILABLE Mixed Media on Canvas. Explore collage techniques using textures, found materials and layering to create depth and visual interest in your one of a kind works.  Hidden messages and personal narratives take centre stage in these pieces.
