Workshops & Events

Joyce Burkholder, Canadian Wilderness Artist, Algonquin Park, Painting Workshop Instructor, Wilno, OntarioPainting Workshops with Canadian wilderness artist Joyce Burkholder

Joyce’s Adventure Painting Workshops take place in beautiful rural and wilderness settings near Wilno, Ontario.

They are designed for all levels of experience so everyone works at their own pace. With lots of demonstrating and encouragement, she skillfully guides each student from the beginning to the end of the painting process with many examples to follow, or some choose to do their own compositions using the techniques she teaches. Joyce encourages painting outdoors in nature and as well there is a large comfortable studio space provided for painting indoors…either way, it is always fun, educational and an adventure!

One-day workshops are $125, including some materials. Deposit required. Maximum 12 students. Materials and equipment are $15/day or bring your own. Nearby accommodations include motels, B&Bs, inns, camping and excellent restaurants.

For more information or to register, please email or phone 613-756-9283.
