From Sultana Island--Robert Genn

This post is to commemorate and thank Robert Genn. Genn has been an outstanding painter for years. He has also generously shared his art knowledge on his website:
On his web this morning, he acknowledged that he has received a devastating health prognosis. My best wishes go out to him and his family.

Brought to You by the Columbia Basin Trust

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!

This is a good workshop on acrylics. I would take it again if I had the time.
