What we're about

This is a group of people wanting to share and improve art skills.. Also to enhance creativity and inspire the soul. It is run out of the AFFA Studio by local artists.

Art has long been known to be a great therapy. Through art we can gain a deeper understanding of our lives and things around us. Everything we do is a lesson for life. There will be fun new sessions coming in Spring/Summer 2019.

Experienced artists are welcome to join as well as non-artists or beginners. Some artists may want to try a new skill and we are here to help each other through it.

This collective is for anyone interested in: Oil painting, acrylics, watercolours, encaustic, drawing, sculpting... And sooo much more. We will also branch out into Theatre, Performance Art, Music, Poetry, ... We have events like Ladies night, paint nights, kids classes, workshops featuring different artists, paint days outdoors, volunteer opportunities, visits to exhibitions, etc.

Join us and see what you'd like to do. Dates and venues that are tentative are dependent on number of attendees/ show of interest... so sign up! And please remember to cancel if you can't make it.. courtesy goes a long way! Someone else might be waiting for a spot. Thanks and see you soon!

Saturday Paint Night - $20

AFFA Studio

Join us for a fun evening of painting and cocktails. All supplies included (paint, canvas, brushes, etc.) Light snacks provided. Oh and two things, it's a Byob if you prefer a glass of something stronger like a refreshing cocktail, beer or wine. Also there's a cat in the building if you have allergies. It's not your regular paint night folks! We are artists and trial-run artists who aren't really into the party scene anymore and love a chill evening of chatter with drinks and new friends. And it's not like those you see advertized, you get to paint your very own individualized painting, and i'll be right here to help you along and show you how. If you have a photo you'd like to work from please bring a clearly printed version (4x6 or smaller works best) but we do have some you can choose from. Dress casually in case you get paint on you .. Oh and there is a wheelchair accessible washroom
