Art Classes: Cocoa & Paint
March 25, 2022
Cocoa and Paint
Jamii is hosting a series of FREE “Cocoa and Paint” workshops for people of ALL ages in our community.
March 30 – April 6 – April 13, 2022 (3 evenings) from 6:00 to 8:00 pm. At the St. Lawrence Community Centre
Funded by Rama Gaming House
As a group, alongside artist Alison Garwood-Jones, we will be painting the same image individually as a group while enjoying a cup of hot cocoa. Alison will go through a step-by-step process on how to paint the chosen image. This will allow participants to learn new painting skills, while also putting those skills to practice in real-time! The paintings will be an urban scene, a floral painting, and lastly a portrait which is all beginner-friendly.
The sessions will also include a healing element as we will explore and express emotions through being intentional with our choice of colours, brush strokes, and technique in addition to our group discussions.
Alison Garwood-Jones is a Toronto illustrator and writer who makes art because it lifts her spirits and changes her sense of what’s possible. It’s a message she likes to share with others.
Participants have the option to either commit to all three paint nights or just attend one.
The workshops will be on Wednesdays from 6:00 pm-8:00 pm on March 30th, April 6th, and April 13th, 2022, at the St. Lawrence Community Center.
FREE – No previous painting experience needed.
