We were here!
On Saturday, July 22 – we celebrated our ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY with an Anniversary Open House event. We got started at 9am and wiped the last bit of paint off the tables at 6pm – an all-day event! With the help of our vendors, we were able to put together several door prizes that were handed out throughout the day, along with a bigger Rembrandt Oil Color themed door prize drawing that is open until August 1. The winner will be drawn an announced on that day.
The Rembrandt Oil Color themed door prize includes a stretched canvas, an oil paper pad, an apron, a couple of Rembrandt brand oil paint tubes, a few brushes, some mineral spirits and linseed oil….and a $50 gift certificate for Rembrandt products! It’s a nice little giveaway package valued at around $150.
Along with all the goodies and door prizes – were FREE CLASSES! Kateri – our Monday evening instructor – put together 2 different classes for the day! At 10am she led the class on creating a Gerhard Richter inspired abstract painting and at 2pm she had them follow along to a Van Gogh “Wheat Field with Cypresses” painting. Both classes were full and even had a few observers watching the process!
A “Community Canvas” was laid out and everyone was invited to grab a brush and add a little splash of color to it! And speaking of color – we had a paper marbling station going for most of the afternoon. This was a fun and easy way introduction to the whole ‘marbling’ technique. If you missed our Anniversary Open House…well, what can I say… you missed a full day of fun artsy activities!
Until next time…
