Try your hand at painting with one of Calgary’s finest artists Mandy Stobo, a three-time recipient of the Best Visual Artist Award in Calgary. She is renowned for her amazing "bad portraits" and in this intimate workshop, you can create your own. Guided by Mandy, you’re given a blank canvas, a paint brush and a wackload of colors to combine as you please. Two hours later, you have your own, one-of-a-kind custom watercolor portrait to take home with you. You don’t have to be Van Gogh to come to this workshop, it’s designed to bring out your own creativity and originality as you paint your portrait. The workshop is hosted at Vin Room, voted Calgary’s Best Wine List. $20 of your ticket price will go towards a purchase from the menu to fuel your creativity for the afternoon.
The Ideas Week labs are presented in partnership with Best of Calgary and First Calgary Financial. The intention is to bring Calgarians an exclusive opportunity to connect with the best of our city through fun, interactive and unique events.
