Life is bigger with painty fingers

We're excited to announce a series of exclusive painting workshops at Trenanthia Cottage in Muskoka delivered by international artist, portrait painter, instructor and all-around lovely person, Lorna Phillips.  Over to her to tell you more . . .

The workshops revolve around helping you to feel quietly confident and deeply inspired - the two basic ingredients that any artist needs to flourish. Throw in the many tips and techniques I'll coach you through to help banish the “damn, I can’t get this bit to work” frustrations, some patience, and a lot of practice and you’ll be fearless – creating works of art that you didn’t even know you could imagine, much less deliver.

You’ll be well-nourished with home cooked meals from local produce, inspiring conversation, and lots of laughs, compliments of everyone on the workshop & the relaxing Muskoka wonderland all around us.
You should keep on painting. . . [because] the more experience you have, the better
. . . unless it kills you, and then you know you’ve gone too far
