All are welcome to attend this drop-in watercolour art class with Cathy Wild (in association with the Community Wholeness Centre), a Barrie resident who began painting as therapy in April 2016.
Being a self-proclaimed artist, she journeyed through self discovery after brain surgery and now volunteers her time helping others paint while continuing her own recovery.
She facilitates this practice as a mixture of stimulation, reflection, thought provocation, peaceful calm, relaxation and mindfulness. Some of her art has been on display at The Edge Gallery and The Barrie Art Club.
COST OF MATERIALS: A nominal fee of $5.00 (or pay-what-you-can) is collected for the cost of materials each session.
DATE/TIME: All are welcome to attend this drop-in, watercolour art class from 1:00-3:00 pm Tuesdays to explore their artistic abilities. Doors open at 12:45.
LOCATION: At the bottom of Bayfield St., off the parking lot across from the Salvation Army. Go up the ramp to the main entrance (near the back door of the British Arms).
Coffee/Tea and other snacks and beverages will be available for purchase (at a nominal price) from the Spirit Cafe inside the location.
All levels of skill and experience are welcome. Hope to see you there, and if you are in need of a ride, please send a message to have one arranged.

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.
