Want to throw a music, art or fundraising event at the Gladstone?
As part of a B-Corporation commitment to social engagement and responsibility, The Gladstone Hotel works with community partners and artists on a host of cultural events, from Pride parties to trivia nights. If you have a proposal for a cultural-events partnership, please out our partnership request form.
Let’s go with the flow! In this beginner’s workshop, you will learn how to use concentrated watercolours, masking fluid, as well as a variety of salts, drips, and splashes to create a vibrant sea turtle painting!
Located in the Gladstone Hotel’s Melody Bar, this workshop is perfect for newbies and people looking for a refresher on watercolour techniques, and anyone who likes to get a little creative while having a drink (or two!)
You’ll end the day with a beautiful painting you can take home, as well as a good filling of watercolour knowledge you can use to experiment and play with your newly mastered medium!
Watercolour is a wild and unpredictable medium, but don’t be shy, come pick up a brush and try it out!
Students to bring pencils & erasers.
