Saturday, April 17, 2021 – This course will be split up 2 hours in the morning and 2-3 hours after a break. It is a beginner introduction into the use of acrylic paints. We will be focusing in the morning with mixing colours and becoming a little familiar with your tools. In the afternoon we will focus on starting and perhaps finishing a small landscape painting of your choice. (you are encouraged to bring a photo or two of something you would like to try)

After the session, spend the rest of the afternoon as you wish, taking time for yourself in the fresh mountain air! Relax, take a hot tub spa or walk through the property, rejoin the group for appetizers and dinner.

Sunday, April 18, 2021 – After breakfast with leisurely coffee, you may rejoin the painting station if you wish. Thank you for spending your time with Boreale!
