All are welcome to attend this drop-in watercolour art class, a meaningful activity that will include a mixture of stimulation, reflection, thought provocation, peaceful calm, relaxation and mindfulness.
Your guide will be Cathy Wild, a Barrie resident who began painting as therapy in April 2016 after her own journey through self discovery after brain surgery. Some of her art has been on display at The Edge Gallery and at The Barrie Art Club.
Through an association with the Community Wholeness Centre, Cathy is excited to volunteer her time in helping others paint while continuing her own recovery. May you find yourself inspired by the giftedness this workshop can bring out in you through your creations.
COST: A goodwill donation of $5 is suggested (for those who can).
MATERIALS: A nominal fee of $5 is collected for the cost of materials each session.

Creating Connection Barrie is a charter member of Creating Connection Canada, a network of welcoming and inclusive communities committed to sharing authentic conversation, promoting meaningful activities and fostering holistic mind-body practices.
By welcoming and accepting people of every walk of life, culture, faith or tradition (including those who identify as “more spiritual than religious”, humanist, agnostic, or searching for meaning), the collective experience transcends the sum of our individual ways of being, and meaningful community is formed. We are LGBTQ+ affirming.
These communities are diverse and multi-faceted, expressing the inspirations, aspirations, wisdom, practices and blessings of all. In embracing this unity we discover a dialogue that is enriched by different backgrounds, perspectives and experiences. This inclusive outlook helps build relationships of trust, belonging and inner peace.
