PARRSBORO POP-UPS CONTINUE Calling all artists, artisans, musicians and dancers in Parrsboro and surrounding area!

FIrst open air meetup for some of Parrsboro’s artisans


Calling all artists, artisans, musicians and dancers in Parrsboro and surrounding area!

Parrsboro Creative is organizing another Pop-Up Event at the local Bandstand on Main Street at the Cross Roads on Saturday, Oct. 3 from 11 am – 4 pm. We are seeking interested local artists of any medium who would like to participate with a demonstration, performance and/or display of their work, with the perk of potential sales as well.

We are primarily seeking creatives who have had little public exposure so we can help promote their work. We are limited by space and social distancing protocols so if we are unable to serve all that are interested, or if you’re unable to participate, don’t worry! We will be organizing more opportunities in the following year.

We also welcome local food vendors who would like to set up and sell their products on-site.

During this difficult time for artists and the public, we are offering this service without any fees attached to this event.

If you are interested in participating, please contact Parrsboro Creative at 902-728-2007, or

This Saturday September 19th, 2-5pm ~ Take a 3-hour online workshop with Henry Tian

How to paint FAST and GOOD – a 3-hour online workshop with Henry Tian

Hello all! My name is Henry Tian and I am a professional oil painter working in the tradition of realism. I display at Art 1274 Hollis gallery. I am excited to offer an online workshop where I will show you how to simplify your subject so that you can capture the essence of the subject in a short amount of time. (The examples shown here – my son and the owl, were each painted in just 1.5 hours). Now, this is not about speed at all. It’s about developing your ability and skill to see the important visual elements that make up your subject and capture them with your paint. The speed and efficiency of how I paint is only a by-product of how I see and what I know. And I want to share that with you in this online workshop.

You will learn:

How to use your peripheral vision to get the gestalt of your subject before the details

How to see shapes abstractly instead of concretely

How to see the transition between any two shapes (a key for realism)

How to mix any color in the visual world with a basic 12-color palette

How to make your brushstrokes effective and interesting (no more aimless dabbing, I have been there…)

How to use the above knowledge in a painting

The structure and detail of the workshop is as follows:

3-hour online video session over Skype ( you can ask me questions live as I go)

First hour is a discussion of key concepts and techniques in oil painting

Second hour is a demo with commentaries

Third hour is finishing the demo and group discussion

When: Saturday September 19th, 2-5pm (video replay will be provided afterwards so you can watch it over and over again if needed)

Fee: $33 (e-transfer is the preferred method of payment)

Bonus: I will send you the real-time video of how I painted my son and the owl, each in 1.5 hours only, so you can watch every step of my process. You can even watch these videos before the workshop so you can ask specific questions during the actual workshop.

Please email me at to register! Thank you.
