Virtual Howe Sound Orca Paint & Sip Night – Painting Class Event

May 21 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Howe Sound Orca Paint Event
Level 2 Painting – Intermediate
7:00-9:30pm

There is nothing that quite lifts the spirits of those of us living in the beautiful Pacific North West than siting a pod of orcas. In recent years, a pod has returned to Howe Sound after a very long absence. 

The arts help people cope in dark times so during this COVID pandemic we are delighted to be going virtual and bring our paint events to the comfort of your own home. What makes our events so unique is the fact that all of our teachers are professional artists themselves. We do not teach stroke over stroke but teach actual painting techniques so that you can learn and improve your skill over time. We encourage you to express your own creativity and 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

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)
or 
$45 if you would like to pick up a 100 Braid St Paint Event Kit with supplies. (please find a list of supplies that will be included in FAQ’s; an email will provide pick up times for this event)

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 or technical staff will spend a few minutes getting you acclimated to the virtual software.
