On Sunday, November 3rd, 2013, the Headwater's Art Society hosted a figure drawing session. We had 9 people participate in our drawing exercises that day, led by Paula Cravens. We had a great time and plan to hold another figure drawing session in the new year. Watch for upcoming events on our blogspot and in the Canal Flats Newsletter. Cheers!
The Headwater's Art Society would like to extend our deepest gratitude to Paula Cravens,
who is one of our founding members and who has been an integral part of our group.
Paula has recently moved to Radium Hotsprings, B.C. We wish her luck and hope that she
will visit us whenever she can. Continue to create and inspire Paula! Thank you!
The Headwaters Art Society held a weekend workshop with Graham Flatt the last weekend in September. We had 11 attendees!
We wanted to offer a workshop at an affordable price. We wanted to entice people to come and check out our lovely new art room in the Canal Flats Discovery Centre.
In early 2013, we applied for a program 4A grant to bring in a mentor from the Columbia Kootenay Cultural Alliance. The maximum amount you can receive is $2000. We received $1800. This helped us to pay for hall rental, advertising and the cost to pay for and host our instructor. Thank you, CKCA!!
We had a good teacher, great attendees and we got to show off our beautiful, light filled art room that we were able to build with grant funding from the Columbia Basin Trust. Thank you CBT!!
The Headwaters Art Society received great reviews. We hope to offer more workshops and events in the future. Watch this blog!

Judy Walker and me at the reception for Papier Colle Femmes. There was a
fine turnout. The rest of the show was very interesting also. Our third
musketeer, Carney Oudendag had to miss the event because she had just
moved and was up to her ears busy but she was keenly missed.
Judy's awesome album.
Carney's super suitcase.
If you can get down to Pynelogs, go have a delicious lunch on the patio and take in the art.
by stories on collage collaborations that I kept
reading about on Art blogs and “Cloth, Paper, Scissor ” magazine
decided to approach my two favorite collage artists in my area. They are
Oudendag and Judy Walker. I suggested that we each make a dozen
of which would be sent to the other participants each and four to keep
It was a bit of a wild ride. We didn’t really know what we were doing
plunged in anyway. I think that may be the best course for most
projects. We called ourselves the "Papier Colle Femmes" which translates
roughly to women who tear up paper. Grrr!
collaborative collage project will be in the Pynelogs Innovations show
July 8-21. The reception is Wednesday night July 10 from 7-9 pm. Please

I am taking part in the Nelson Art Walk this year. I will let you know how it turns out. "This year ArtWalk will kick off on Friday, July 5 with opening

artsy activities and performances in the 400-block of Baker Street. The event starts at 6 p.m. with the Kootenay Keltie Pipe Band
marching the ArtWalk route. Throughout the evening, there will be
musicians playing around the route, providing ambiance for your art
viewing experience." Nelson Star newspaper
Bill Doroshuk's work shows beautifully at Pynelogs!
Friday night was the reception for the Purcell Mountain Painters/ Headwaters Art Society Show at Pynelogs Cultural Centre. There was a good turnout for the reception. I was very proud of the amount of work the Headwaters Art Society had in the show. We are doing a great job! Keep painting. We will try to keep the show schedule rolling in.
Hail, hail, the gangs (nearly) all here. We missed you Bill.
Leslie, Tony, Brian, Paula, Dodie, Kristine and Wolfgang on the deck.
Wednesday night from 6:30 until 8 or so, painting overlooking Columbia lake. Come and join the Headwaters group. If you can't make 6:30 come a little later. You may get to see the new Art room.
I will go out today and tie flourescent orange streamer along the route.
For those coming from Invermere or points north, from highway 93 turn onto Burns ave. then left on Grainger. Then drive, drive past the mountain sheep, past the beach turnoff (stay on Grainger) until you see orange streamers and/or painters.
