Two Workshops, Two Weekends – July 27 & 28 and August 3 & 4 in Brigus, Newfoundland

The Landfall Trust oversees the 200 year-old Kent Cottage in Brigus, NL and provides seasonal artist, writer and musician-in-residence programs. When the cottage is not in use for the residencies, it is rented out as a creative and arts retreat. See www.landfalltrust.org.

This summer we are offering two workshops on two separate weekends and would love to see participants from across the Atlantic provinces.

Two Workshops, Two Weekends –

July 27 & 28, 2019 Architecture Drawing with Wallace Ryan

August 3 & 4, 2019 En Plein Air Painting

with Canadian Artist Sue A. Miller

These workshops will in part support the artist in residence programs.
