MONDAY October 16th – Plein Air Paint/Sketch Out – Willistead

This weeks FREE paint out will be on the grounds of Willistead Manor.  Are you up for a challenge?  The Mansion will give you a run for your money.  There is also the lovely Paul Martin Garden, one of our  favorite locations to paint.  The grounds abound with mature trees, and meandering pathways.  The Paul Martin garden is pristine and alive with colour.  The mansion, coach and gate house are architectural delights to paint.  If you can’t find enough subject matter on the grounds, then venture out into the surrounding Walkerville neighborhood that boasts beautiful homes and churches to paint as well.

Location:
Willistead Manor
1899 Niagara Street (at Kildare Street)
Windsor, Ontario

Willistead Manor is a 36-room mansion nestled within a 15-acre park, that offers great venue for weddings, receptions, meetings, and other special events.

It was built by Edward Chandler Walker, son of Hiram Walker in 1917. The manor’s Tudor-Jacobean architecture reflects 20th century ingenuity and the elegance of another era.

THINGS TO CONSIDER and WHAT TO BRING

  • Food/water – We urge you to bring a sack lunch, and water.
  • Protective clothing –   It’s getting cold time to layer up.  Don’t forget gloves, and a neck scarf.
  • Art supplies – Your art supplies can be as little as a pencil, pad and sharpener or as elaborate as a full french easel box of oils and canvases. If you are just starting out, we suggest starting small.

We hope you all take advantage of the best studio in the world… The Great Outdoors.
