Acrylic painting with Christine Benjamin

The image for this workshop was taken in August along the Rabbit Trail in the Corduroy Brook conservation area. It was a gorgeous late summers day with marshland filled with cattails  and wildflowers. I worked in acrylics for this painting because they dry very quickly and are very durable.                     
I will be using a 13x15 gessoed flat canvas so that the finished painting can be hung as is, stretched on frame, used as place mat under centrepiece on your dining table or under your favourite knickknack on a side table. This is meant to be an opportunity to paint, learn and have fun being creative.

Registration will take place, starting on September 3rd by emailing  or contacting Robert Lodge at 489-9304. You can make an e- transfer payment to, using the password registration or call Robert at 489-9304  if you wish to use cash or a cheque.  Payment for the workshops is due at the time of registration, and that is the only way to confirm your participation in the workshop.  If you have questions, you can reach us at:
