Kindrie will lead you through the time-honoured tradition of still life and interior painting. Explore and paint intimate, eclectic still life corners and Spanish style interiors. Imagine giving yourself the gift of a creative weekend at a beautiful home on Okanagan lakefront…a time away to paint, learn, share, and relax. Good company with like minded artists, comfort food, a crackling fire, a warm therapeutic Jacuzzi…a time to create, reflect and rejuvenate.
Robinson Place Workshops are hosted at Robinson Place Bed & Beach. Owned and operated by Renee, great granddaughter of the founder of Naramata, this beautiful lake front home sits on the land that once was part of the Naramata Heritage Inn built by Mr. Robinson. This lovingly restored home is filled with beautiful art and antiques, many from the original Inn. You are welcome to use the open kitchen, the beachfront Jacuzzi and property. This is your home for the weekend to enjoy, your home for relaxation, restoration and rejuvenation.
