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.

Paint Out: Doors Open Event at Navy Yard Park

Saturday & Sunday Sept. 30, Oct. 1.
Navy Yard Park Paint Out
Amherstburg, Ontario
Doors Open Event

Time: 10:00 – 4:00

We’ve been asked to participate in this event by the Doors Open committee.  The park is located across the street from the Ice Cream Parlour.

Link to Map of the Kings Navy Yard Park:  https://goo.gl/maps/zffb3ZiL41E2  (actually a map to the ice cream parlour.)  We will be across the street.

You might wonder why we volunteer in these events.

  • We paint in these parks free all year round.  This is an opportunity to give back to the community.
  • It is an honour to be asked to participate, it shows we are a respected and recognized group.
  • It gives us, as artists, an opportunity to educate the public about our art form.
  • It’s an opportunity to network with the public.   Hand out those business cards!
  • We can inform the public of upcoming group and personal shows.

Notice:
When we do weekend events such as this we don’t go out on the following Monday.  The reasons for this is that we need you to participate on the weekend if at all possible.  Even if it’s only for a few hours.

Please let me know if you are going so that I can look for you.  You may also phone my cell on the day should you have trouble locating us.  My cell is 519-564-4361

See you this Saturday and/or Sunday!
Happy Painting,
Elizabeth
