Plein Air Workshop with Olga Senyk
9:00 to 12:00, Saturday June 19, at Milne Park
Due to Covid restrictions there is a limit of 10 participants, so sign up early to avoid disappointment
$25.00 Members
$35.00 Non-Members

A morning of 'fun in the sun', plein air painting. Lets get our sketch books out, do some thumbnail sketches, talk about good composition, colour & values, perspective
of landscape and water, sight line, hard & soft edges and how the sun or cloudy day affects the value & colours your actually seeing. Then quickly move into the medium
of your choice and get painting. Say "Hi" to old friends or meet new ones. Pack a lunch or snacks, bug spray, sun stuff but most importantly your art gear. Choose smaller
canvases in order to capture your immediate response to the subject which is fast fleeting.

Announcing Ontario Trillium Foundation Funding

Your MGA leadership team is pleased to announce that MGA is receiving a grant of $11,300 from the Ontario Trillium Foundation’s Resilient Communities Fund
to help our group rebuild and recover from impacts of COVID-19. With these funds and once pandemic restrictions are lifted, we will secure safe meeting spaces,
where we will live stream workshops and demonstrations with equipment purchased. We will also extend our social media outreach, so we can continue to
increase our membership. Next, our membership registration process will be automated to facilitate information processing and new member orientation. Finally,
we will begin conversations with local art groups to explore opportunities for collaboration.

 MGA extends our sincere thanks to the Ontario Trillium Foundation for its support of our efforts.
