The recreation classes have been going really well in Faro. Last week we had 16 people show up for the program. This is the most I have had for a class. We painted in Sihouette trees and sunset.
Yesterday we had 11 people come and do their rendition of Northern Lights on Gold Pans. Karen Wolczanski a friend who is visiting Faro from Ottawa; she graciously let us try her open (slow-drying) acrylics. It made the blendng so much easier in the sky and it is always nice to try new things. This program has been a great alternative to lawn bowling for the seniors for recreation in our community. The program is called art walk because it begins with a walking session at the rec centre to music and we also have a snack. Yesterday's was Yukon Cranberry Jam (made by Marilyn Boyle) with Brie, fresh apple and strawberries, French Bread and an assortment of nuts and seeds to nibble on. As an instructor this is the most affirming and wonderful experience: To be able to share my love of painting and create a healthy and fun environment for the people of my community is the ultimate!
