Grand Painting Experience runs on June 6, 7

The Grand Painting Experience welcomes everyone interested in learning the basics of painting outdoors to come to the Elora Centre for the Arts on June 6 and 7.

Art kits will be lent and people will join artists Mere­dith Blackmore or Rick Wor­thington on location in the village.

This event is free but registration is encouraged – to reserve the art kit and book the time for the experience. Call 519-846-9698 or email admin­

For the experienced outdoor painter, the second event runs simultaneously with the free event.

The centre is calling artists to join in a weekend of painting the Grand, in parti­c­ular the areas around Elora and Fergus. 

A $25 registration fee will give a chance to participate in a quick Plein Air Primer – and a day or two of painting outdoors.

In the event that it is raining or too windy, locations will be identified with weather protec­tion. A social gathering at the end of each afternoon as well as a still wet art sale on the Saturday evening will enhance the experience. Registration forms are available at www.­ or by calling 519-846-9698.

The public is welcome to the sale on June 6 in the even­ing, from 7 to 9pm.
