Join Peggy Burkosky, AFCA for two full days of indoor and outdoor workshop instruction and painting. What a magical place to paint at Milner Gardens & Woodland in Qualicum Beach, especially in Autumn! This heritage location is supported by the Milner Gardens & Woodland Society and Vancouver Island University. Acres of garden surround the heritage gabled house which includes features of a Ceylonese tea plantation house with winding paths of old growth Douglas firs and cedars framing breathtaking views of the Strait of Georgia. The garden lawns slope gently to meet a precipitous bluff which plunges to the beach below. Flora, fauna and architecture in this setting makes for great subject matter as we explore loose, painterly brushwork and study a solid overview on the principles of design.
