4. Paint like an Impressionistic Master

Beginners to experienced artists can discover and create their own impressionist art work. You’ve always admired Monet’s Water Lilies; why not create them first hand in our impressionist workshops. The brush stokes are loose and the colours pure. Precision is not required.

You will get launched with the foundation of the painting and then you are free to explore and add your own touches. You will be gently guided by professional artist Louise Lambert with tips on your set up and palate recommendations.

Look for in these creative series:

  • Monet Water Lilies
  • Van Gogh’s Starry, Starry Night
  • Van Gogh Returns with Sunflowers
  • Lauren Harris, Winter Wonderland

Teaching Philosophy

In a supportive and non-judgemental atmosphere you will be given enough structure to ensure a sense of accomplishment, while allowing your creative expression to develop.  Along with the pleasure you will get from art there are a wealth of skills that are naturally developed during the process.   Educators, brain researchers have noted that adults and children who engage in the visual arts show vast improvement in concentration levels, problem-solving abilities and critical-thinking skills.

Creativity lights up the mind and research reveals that it increases learning and retention, as well, while being a wonderful break from the normal routine & stress.

 Join us for these creative experiences from Wine Country Studios and rejuvenate yourself.
