Partnering with Petroff Gallery
Abstract Painting

The perfect way to start your journey – learning about colour, composition and create with paint!
Designed for the non-artist, our goal is to expose you to new creative experiences and teach you the basic skills that will enable you to continue on your creative journey. 

Adventurers will go home with a custom abstract painting, a 10"x10" as well as gesture drawings and paint worksheets.  More importantly we hope you leave with wonderful memories and a continued desire to create! 

You will create a beautiful 10” x 10” abstract painting in the style of Kate Taylor surrounded by inspiring work other Canadian artists featured in Petroff's Small Works show. Plus, join us for an exclusive VIP behinds the scenes gallery tour.

We'll start our evening with a welcome drink and getting to know your fellow Adventurers as we do a few creativity warm-up exercises. Our guided workshops will provide you with the direction you need to be successful. You will be encouraged to break out of your comfort zone, accept serendipity and build creative skills such as colour theory and composition.

Time to Go

Celebrate in your success, take some photos and post your story to remember your day! Make your way home with your own custom masterpiece or choose to have it resined and pick-up at a later date.


Give Yourself Time!

We have a packed agenda, and encourage you to arrive early and get inspired by the exhibition of small works on display. We will not force you to pocket your cell phones (you will want to take pictures of your pieces and experience); however, one of the best ways to get the most from your adventure is to immerse yourself in the activity.


What to Wear

Be prepared to get messy! As you can imagine – these adventures are all about the fashion…not! We will get messy – that is the point. We encourage you to dig in the bottom of your closet for some old T-shirts and wear some comfortable clothes that you don’t need to worry about.. We do have aprons available but not having to worry about your clothing is very freeing!
