Braid St Art: Tall Cedars after Emily Carr Painting – Virtual Paint Night

October 9 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

We’re delighted to share Tall Cedars after Emily Carr, British Columbia’s most well-known and loved painter.

We want you to be safe, healthy and creative by bringing our paint events to the comfort of your own home and bubble. Braid St paint events are different than others you see listed because of the fact that all of our teachers are professional artists themselves. We are a working art studio and do not use a stroke over stroke copying but teach specific painting skills so that you can learn and improve your skills. We encourage you to sign up for several events and to learn to express your own creativity and individual style.

Each event will be presented live through a streaming platform. A link will be emailed to you with all of the information needed to be able to attend.

Thank you for supporting us and other local businesses during the COVID shutdown. #supportlocal #flattenthecurve

There are two ticket choices:

$20 if you have art supplies at home (please find a list below of the items needed in our FAQ’s)


$45 if you would like to pick up a 100 Braid St Paint Event Kit with supplies. (please find a list of supplies and our pick up address included in FAQ’s – we are working on shipping).

Your “studio” requirements:

  • No distractions so you’re able to keep up with the teacher
  • Drink & snacks
  • Zoom App on your digital device – please go to zoom.com and download the free software. We will be sending you a special Zoom link prior to your event and you will use this link to access the class. Our Artist will spend a few minutes getting you acclimated to the virtual software.

If this date doesn’t work for you, there is always the option of booking a private paint night! All you need is 8 people for a virtual event or you can do a event for 10+ people in our studio as long as social distancing rules are applied! We are also happy to provide team bonding events for businesses and corporations. For more information: https://100braidststudios.com/bookaparty/
