The Beauty and Light of Fall Colors
Contemplative Art Retreat
September 23 from 10 am to 4 pm
Join us for a relaxed day of painting in this idyllic setting nestled in the Pakenham countryside along the Mississippi River half an hour west of Ottawa.
The day will begin with coffee and a brief presentation on contemplative art by Esther Berg, Artist in Residence, followed by a guided meditation by Claire Marson, owner and Director of Stonebridge Haven.
Artists are then free to scatter across the 7 1/2 acres of lawns, gardens, wooded slopes and walking paths with gorgeous river views, or paint indoors in the peaceful and accessible Promise House. There will be an opportunity at the end of the day to share your experience and your paintings with the group and to enjoy some social time in this lovely setting.
A selection of beverages and snacks will be offered throughout the day along with a seasonal lunch.
Bring your easels, brushes, paint supplies and paint brush bottles as due to country septic systems there will be limited clean-up facilities.
Registration is limited to 15 artists and the cost for the day is $100.00 including HST.
To sign up please e-mail us your name, phone number, address and also any special dietary requirements to firstname.lastname@example.org
The deadline for registration is September 18. For more information call 613-624-5518 or go to http://www.stonebridgehaven.ca
