“Taste and paint”
The next “Taste and Paint” workshop will take place at the Manoir Marjim cellar at 2 pm on June 13. For $ 35, participants will receive all materials, refreshments and a glass of wine for those over 21.
Teri Seddon will be the instructor. In about two hours, she will take participants from blank canvas to finished works of art. The painting will be “A tree of life”. Seddon will walk the artists through creating a tree, and then each person can add what makes it personal to them. In the past, people have added birds, animals, and leaves. Some added swings or a picnic scene. Each painting is unique.
Reservations are strongly suggested. They can be prepared online at www.MarjimManor.com or by calling the winery at 716-778-7001.
