Crush of Colour painting workshops hosted at valley wineries

Jennifer Pickering to lead painting workshops for all levels hosted at picturesque Okanagan wineries.

A Celebration of Art and Wine

A Crush of Colour presents a series of painting workshops for all levels hosted at picturesque Okanagan wineries.  Relax on the patio as you drink in the colourful landscapes and quality wines. Instruction will focus on teaching the En Plein Air style of the masters.  Workshops run Tuesday and Thursday afternoons from 1-4pm starting June 19 through July 26 and all materials are provided.

A Crush of Colour is a new project by Jennifer Pickering, MFA and former director of the Alternator Centre for Contemporary Art. Pickering is an art instructor skilled in teaching painting, colour theory and drawing. She has nine years of teaching experience gained at community centres, art galleries and as a sessional instructor for both first and second year painting at the University of British Columbia, Vancouver.

I look forward to facilitating a series of positive and uniquely Okanagan workshops for participants from beginners to more advanced. I’m excited to share the works of the masters such as Cézanne, Matisse and Derain and allow their paintings to guide and inspire.

The workshops launch from the breathtaking setting at Thornhaven Estates located on the slopes of Little Giant’s Head Mountain in Summerland. From here they move to the lush vineyards at the Greata Ranch Estate Winery in Peachland. The final sessions will be hosted at The View Winery with spectacular views of Kelowna and Okanagan Lake.
