Paint Nights at the Gardens

August 20 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Trees: August  20 – 5pm – 7pm

Picnic in the Gardens starts at 1pm, so consider arriving early for your class and bringing a picnic lunch while enjoying the sounds of a live local musician. At 5pm, move into the pavilion for your paint night experience.

At its core, our Paint Night offers a creative platform for individuals to create, experiment, learn, and socialize; all while working towards their own version of the same painting. You’ll learn about working with Acrylics, mixing colours, the application of paint on canvas, and how to create good composition. There is no painting experience required as we’ll lead you through the painting step-by-step!

We’ll be featuring a new painting every month inspired by flowers, trees, and landscapes, alongside unique techniques. Whether you paint regularly, haven’t painted in a while, or have never painted, painting workshops are a favourite among those who like to try new things, find creative expression, meet new people, and explore new sides of themselves.

HCP Members & Non-Members – $50.00
