Raise your glass as a new event is ushered in at the Heritage House Museum in Smiths Falls. On February 18 from 7–9pm, the museum will be hosting their first paint night, entitled “Lushes with Brushes”. It’s the perfect opportunity to enjoy refreshments, paint alongside your friends, and get creative!
The workshop will be led by local artist Jenine McCann. She will lead the participants step-by-step in painting a brilliant image of a leaning tree against a night sky. Jenine grew up in the Westport area and has since followed her career to Carleton Place where she currently works as a chiropractor, while making time to be creative. Art has always played a role in Jenine’s life. She enjoyed taking art classes throughout school and has always sketched and painted in her spare time. It was only in the past four years that she has truly developed her love for painting with acrylics. Inspired by landscapes and wildlife, Jenine incorporates different textures and many bold colours into her work. Her techniques are always changing and developing, and she finds this to be one of the most exciting features of art.
No painting experience? No problem! The event welcomes all painters no matter their experience. Supplies and refreshments are provided by the museum. The only suggestion is that you wear clothing you feel comfortable painting in. So grab a friend, a paintbrush, and a glass, and join the museum for this fun event! Tickets are $40 per person and pre-registration is required. Participants must be 19 or older. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. For more details or to register, please email the museum, call them at 613-283-6311, or visit them on Facebook.
