Nova Scotia’s White Point Beach Resort will be holding painting classes for aspiring students who would like to learn the basics of art. The two-hour art classes will be facilitated by artists, whose topics will be patterned along their choice of wine, spirit, beer or juice, which in turn, will be supplied by the Good Cheer Trail.
The resort’s marketing manager Donna Hatt came up with the idea and entitled the endeavour as the “Brush With Good Cheer”. The art classes will officially start on January 30, 2016. Liverpool’s top watercolor painter Roger Savage will jumpstart the event. His works are displayed at the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia, as well as on the wall of the resort. His choice is the Garrison Brewing’s Hopyard pale ale.
The other facilitators are Marshall Burgess (Tidal Bay white wine), Peter Gough (Steinhart Distillery vodka), Marg Millard (Ironworks Distillery cranberry liqueur), and Marilyn Kellough (Van Dyk’s blueberry juice). There will be a nominal fee for the art classes which already includes art supplies, hors d’ouvres, and of course, the drinks.
