1 DAY TORONTO
This 1 Day Adventure will take place at the Artbarn School in Toronto.
We'll start our day with a welcome – having a mimosa 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. Throughout the day, you will be encouraged to break out of your comfort zone, accept serendipity and build creative skills such as colour theory and composition.
At the end of day, celebrate your creative achievements with a glass of wine and an intense pride in what you have created. We hope you continue your creative journey as you take home your new masterpieces and treasured memories.

Artbarn School is located in midtown Toronto, along the Eglinton Way (Eglinton Avenue West at Oriole Park). In 2005, Mary Thelander, Frith Bail and Linda McMaster envisioned a welcoming not-for-profit community art school. Since then, under Linda’s leadership, Artbarn has inspired hundreds of budding artists of all ages. We hope this vision will inspire us all!
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 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 day.
A Little More About Stained Glass
The term stained glass can refer to coloured glass as a material or to works created from it. Throughout its thousand-year history, the term has been applied almost exclusively to the windows of churches and other significant religious buildings.. Modern vernacular usage has often extended the term "stained glass" to include domestic lead lightand objects d'artcreated from foil glassworkexemplified in the famous lamps of Louis Comfort Tiffany.
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!
Looking for a Bigger Creative Adventure?
We are planning a 3 day Adventure at The Opinicon (north of Kingston) this fall. Stay in touch for details as we finalize the activities.
Create Your Own Adventure?
Interested in hosting your own Creative Adventure for a shower or that special Birthday, we do that! Best for groups of 10 or more.
The perfect way to start your weekend – learning about colour and composition through paint and glass! 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.
