BRING ON THE SPRING! Why not start by painting this beautiful Hibiscus for your home or as a gift for someone special. In-house Artist, Daniel Brassard will lead you through the steps of creating this wonderful watercolor painting over a one day workshop. Best of all you only have to bring two things…..your lunch and enthusiasm.
Husbands, Wives, Mothers, Sisters…..everyone was having fun
Each little painting was an original
During the Annual two day Railway City Arts Crawl , Romantic Designs Artist Studio saw over 300 visitors. The free “make and take” was also a “winner” with over 50 little alcohol and ink Paintings being produced.
What was really amazing was the distance that people had traveled to take in the local Arts Crawl. Romantic Designs Studio had visitors from London, Byron, Alymer, Woodstock, Brantford and Ingersoll. We asked how they heard about the event? ” We saw it on Facebook or the Internet.”
Sharon Brassard ( in house Artist) talking to visitors about the Studio concept.
Clifford Crabe – Pencil Crayon Artist was just one the five Artists that joined us for the weekend.
Henry Komarek – Acrylic on Stone Artist
Wow! I guess promoting on the web really works.
Everyone loved the spacious free parking and the beautiful weather.
This weekend is THE ARTS CRAWL – the St.Thomas Studio Tour and Romantic Designs Artist Studio is getting ready to host 5 visiting Artists as well as Dan and myself. We want to look our best as we expect the turn out to be just as good as last year …if not better.
So we have cancelled our regular OPEN STUDIO for this Thursday.
Feel free to join us next week when we continue to have Open Studio from 1-4.
A big thank you to all our Students that came out to the sculpting a GARDEN LADY IN POWERTEX workshop this weekend from London, St.Thomas and Guelph. Once again we had some amazing results and fun was had by everyone.
