Spirit of Mariposa Plein Air Painting

Plein Air Painting

Wednesday, June 7, 2017 - 10:00am to 1:00pm

Participate in four outdoor painting sessions with artist Cathy Boyd in oil or acrylic paint.

Wednesdays, 10am-1pm, on June 7, 14, 21, 28

Experience Orillia through the land in connection with our Spirit of Mariposa exhibit. Each of the four locations have been hand picked to represent the artists featured in the show, celebrating Orillia’s 150th anniversary year.

Participants of all skill levels will join artist Cathy Boyd on-site once a week in the month of June to paint plein air some of the stunning landscapes that surround the Orillia community and have inspired artists past.

Cathy is a full time artist and paints in her studio/gallery in Midland, Ontario. Her adventures in painting were thrust upon her when she was given the task of teaching art on rotary in the elementary school system. A brief teachers college summer workshop session fuelled the fires of creativity. Throughout the ensuing years, although primarily self taught, Cathy sought out instruction with some highly accomplished painters. Cathy takes great pleasure in capturing the many nuances of colour, lights and form of the serene landscapes she sees on her daily travels, both locally and abroad.

Cathy will provide individual attention to each participant, guiding them through the plein air process in either oil or acrylic paint.

LOCATIONS:

Tudhope Park (450 Atherley Road, Orillia)– Out at the tip of the park you will find the “Golden Leaves” sculpture built as a tribute to Gordon Lightfoots songs and life’s work. It is here on the Lightfoot Trail, overlooking the water the plein air will take place

Sunrise Yoga Studio (355 Brewery Lane, Orillia) – A stunning property overlooking Brewery Bay and the Stephen Leacock Museum, home of Canada’s famous humorist. Enter to the right of the house to find the view that inspires you.

Veterans Memorial Park (154 Elgin Street, Orillia) – From this quiet park, you will look to the view to the East which was once Cedar Island the place where sculptor Elizabeth Wyn Wood spent her formative years.

Camp Couchiching  (3990 Longford Mills Road, Longford Mills)– Looking down the shores of Lake Couchiching to the First Nations settlement of the Chippewas of Rama, once home to artist Arthur Shilling, is the direction your plein air will take
