We welcome you to come and engage the Artist's as they work through the creative process on site.  See some of the most scenic views that the Highlands has to offer and finish off your weekend by taking in the Exclusive one day showing and sale of works by the participating artists as you complete your experience with your Brush with the Highlands.

Hey all you lucky souls heading to this - have a great trip and happy painting!

I am at a cottage nearby (sort of, in Dorset) & will be painting, but probably won't get time this year to drop by...

Helen and I have been invited to give a workshop on plein air painting at A Brush with the Highlands on Thursday August 2. We'll be demonstrating  using acrylics, however, the concepts translate to oil as well.

We're quite flattered that we were asked to do this. For people who sign up, we're creating a page on our website which will have recommended materials lists for both acrylic and oil. http://www.wilsonstreetstudio.ca/materials.html

Last year we stayed at one of the nice bed & breakfasts on Tracey's recommended list. This year we're going to try camping.

We hope to see a lot of you there this summer.
