"If you've got the party, we've got the time...and the studio and gallery and the paint and brushes and the one-on-one professional art instruction for every party guest. Catherine has formal training in drawing and painting. Her work appears in local shows and in private collections. She approaches teaching art as a form of creative mentoring, encouraging the imagination and confidence of the beginner while challenging the experienced artist with the insights of a collaborator."

22 September 2018
It started with a dive trip reunion being planned, spearheaded by Tracey, one of our divers that lives the farthest away from the rest of us, followed by Dawn suggesting a paint night. From there, Annie found Judy, a local artist who was willing to take us all on a paint-night adventure, and Andrea secured the venue as her friend owns The Patrick House Art Gallery in Aurora.
We had such a wonderful time, and make no mistake, not a one of us is a professional artist! And it t didn't matter. Our subject matter on September 22, 2018, was a colourful jellyfish.
Now we have a million ideas for underwater art that we would like to try our hands at! Whale shark? Yes! Fill out our super, duper short survery below if you are interested in us organizing another paint night featuring an underwater theme (where we long to be).
