Watercolour Meditations on Place: The Akebono Cherry Trees of Vancouver

Date: Thursday, April 11, 2024 
Time: 6:00PM-8:30PM
Tickets: $40 (plus fees and taxes). Includes admission to the Museum before the workshop!

Join us for an evening of meditative painting in collaboration with the Museum of Vancouver. In this gathering we will celebrate the arrival of the cherry blossoms, practice the art of noticing, and explore watercolour painting as a way to tune into the present moment. Participants will experience guided painting with artist Marisa Pahl and be invited to reflect on their own relationship with trees in the urban landscape and beyond. Our Festival founder, Linda Poole, will introduce the rich history of the ornamental Akebono Cherry in Vancouver.

Beginner watercolourists and seasoned painters are welcome!
