1 DAY Winter Adventure
This 1 Day Adventure will take place at the Alton Mill Arts Centre in Caledon.
We'll start our day with a welcome – having a coffee and getting to know your fellow Adventurers as we do a few creativity exercises. You'll meet other cool people during guided creative workshops throughout out day where you’ll be encouraged to break out of your comfort zone and build creative skills such as colour theory and composition.
At the end of day celebrate your creative achievements with a glass of wine, good food and new friends. Take home your new masterpieces and treasured memories.

Agenda Saturday, March 2
Give Yourself the Day!
Before heading to your adventure, we encourage you to give yourself the day – we will not force you to pocket your cell phones (you will need them to take photos); however, one of the best ways to get the most from your adventure is to immerse yourself in the day.
For the Encaustic class, we encourage you to use a photo you have taken yourself that you can play with. This can be an old sepia-tone of your parents wedding or a landscape at the local park. Think about your positive and negative space and begin by choosing a photo that has about 75 percent light versus dark colors, as light-colored photos have a much better success rate. This workshops process allows us to paint below and on top of the photograph so keep that in mind when choosing your photo.
More details will be provided closer to the day!
What to Wear
Be prepared to get messy! Please wear old comfortable clothing that you can get paint on and dress in layers as some parts of the building can feel drafty at times. You are welcome to bring slippers if you do not want to work in shoes all day. We do have aprons available.
Extend Your Experience
Stay a Little Longer
Enjoying dinner, a spa treatment, hiking, snow shoeing, horse back riding or other local activities in Caledon on your own. We highly recommend the Millcroft Inn and Spa.
