Have an eye for art? Whether you’re young or old — beginner or experienced — you won’t want to miss this special weekend dedicated to discovering art inspired by agriculture!

Join us for a special watercolour workshop (registration required), and expand your knowledge of brushstrokes while creating your own unique painting. If art appreciation is more your style, you’ll want to check out the original works from local artists Andrew King and Elaine Goble, who was inspired by animals and buildings at the Canada Agriculture and Food Museum. You can also meet the artists themselves, who will be on site on Sunday to answer your questions. With a special craft just for kids, the weekend’s events offer something for everyone in the family!

Meet Artist Andrew King

Date: November 10, 2019
Times: From 11 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.
Utilizing his design skills, animation background, and unique brand of humour, Andrew King’s works vary from contemporary landscapes to almost graphic cartoon-style images. Influenced and inspired by where he grew up, his travels, and Prince Edward County (where his parents live), his work evokes both humour and emotion through minimalism, lighting, and colour. Andrew will be on site sketching, while drawing inspiration from the museum. For more information, visit Andrew King’s website.

Meet Artist Elaine Goble

Date: November 10, 2019
Times: From 2 p.m. – 3 p.m.
Elaine Goble has been a professional artist for 40 years. Her career has straddled two artistic worlds. She has a very successful and respected life as a fine art artist, with her works featured in the private collections of many public galleries.
