The Painting Experience on Granville Island

The Painting Experience is happy to return to Granville Island. This workshop fills well ahead of time, so please reserve your spot early.

Nestled in the middle of Vancouver's best known urban waterways, Granville Island is a haven for local artists and craftspeople. The waterside setting, with it's prolific studios, shops, bistros and open-air markets, is an exciting area to explore between painting sessions. Join us for this weekend workshop and set the tone of new growth for 2019 with a deep dive into your internal world of creativity and imagination.

The essential artistic freedom is the right to create unburdened by pressures to perform, produce or succeed. Learning to trust your creative impulse requires a safe atmosphere that genuinely honors and respects individual differences without competition or comparison. ~ Stewart Cubley
