A Winter’s Day at Kerry Farm

When: Sunday, January 26th from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m.

Where: Kerry Farm, Stone Church Road near Abernethy, Saskatchewan

What: A day to explore the beauty of winter at Kerry Farm, and to respond artistically using watercolours, paper collage, or a medium of your choice (which could include creating outside art!).

A little more detail: Winter walks around Kerry Farm inspire and delight me. Close at hand, we have a variety of shelterbelts, wetlands, an ice rink, and some beautiful vistas. Each day is different, and I love looking for the  new animal and bird tracks each morning. Sometimes this beauty inspires a painting or a collage. Other times, I am drawn to the window view – the plants inside and the snowy view outside the window. Some days, the art is created on the ice rink or outside. When winter seems too long, I dip into the deep well of  my imagination and conjure up spring flowers and birds. What will this winter day at Kerry Farm inspire in you?

Who should come? This day is open to all ages* and although the walking and skating are for those who are able, winter can also inspire those who prefer  or need to be indoors. It is less of a teaching day  and more of a “responding to the beauty we find” kind of day, although help will be available for your artistic endeavours if needed. * Little ones and their parents may wish to come for a half day and the price will be adjusted accordingly.
