Hands on Art
NOTE: $25 fee to be collected day of program to cover cost of supplies. Limited to 15 participants. RSVP to email@example.com to reserve a space.
Let’s have a party – a “PAINT PARTY”. If you like to release your inner creative spirit (aka Monet), enjoy a sip or two of your favorite beverage and have an evening out with like-minded friends – this is the place for you! This is not about creating a “masterpiece” but more about sharing a relaxing evening with friends and swinging a brush or two. No previous artistic skill required. We will bring the outside in and create an impressionist landscape painting in the spirit of “Plein air”. All art materials supplied. Wear your favorite painting attire.
DeLee Grant has been creating art for her entire life. She took early retirement from a full time job in 2007 to pursue her lifelong dream of becoming a full time artist. Although primarily self taught, she participated in her first “plein air” workshop in 2007 at the world renown Emma Lake Kenderdine Campus in Canada where she discovered her passion for painting “en Plein Air” (in open air). It was a natural merger between her love for painting and the great outdoors. She continued to hone her skills by training with internationally acclaimed artists in France, Italy, Canada and the U.S. She has travelled extensively and painted plein air landscapes in North America and Europe.
DeLee is also an avid photographer so shares her time between painting (oil and acrylics) and fine art photography. She relies on nature to provide her with inspiration and ideas for her artwork allowing her to capture landscapes and scenes in their natural light. Her love for nature and the great outdoors is evident in her artwork. She has several published images and has received recognition for both her paintings and photographs. Her work can be found in many private collections throughout Canada and the United States. She loves to teach and share what she has learned with others.
