Event description

Description

*Please note the date change to Saturday, October 26 - thank you!*

Join us in a relaxed, creative community night!
We'll be inspired by the fall season (and by pieces from the beautiful "The Daily Leaf" art installation, currently on display at the Causerie!) to paint our own individual leaves... no experience required!

Local artist Paule Charland will guide us with an example painting, but encourages each of us to put our own unique adaptations into our work. We'll use acrylic paints to create our own beautiful leaf from any kind of tree, and paint pens will be provided if we want to write some words on the canvas as well.

We invite you for a fun social evening where we'll hold affirming and non-judgmental space for personal artistic expression =)

Tickets are $25 per person.
(Causerie members receive discounted admission!)
All materials provided with cost of ticket.
Capacity is limited to 20 people.

Coffee, tea, and light refreshments will be provided.
Sparkling water & soda available by donation.
It's okay to bring in outside food & drink.


ABOUT THE FACILITATOR:
Paule Charland is a member of Kitchener-Waterloo Society of Artists, Art$Pay, and the Francophone art organization Bravo-Sud. She says: "I play with vibrant colours and enable light to deploy contrast. I do not restrain myself to try to achieve exact representations. In fact, while my day job requires rigour, in contrast in my art I like to enjoy some liberty. I let the laws of nature only brush against my canvases. Quite often you might find simplicity and blossoming colour in my paintings. The process is as important to me as the final result. I enjoy the calmness of letting my mind focus on the canvas and then wander into that space. I paint representational canvases with brushes in a fairly traditional approach. I remain truthful to my own aspirations."

ABOUT US:
Marit Collective is a social organization that encourages a culture of depth and thoughtfulness through exploring personal insight and human connection. We create space for respectful discussion and consciousness-raising within our own groups and community, working at the personal level to foster more empathy and awareness of each other. We believe that individual shifts in understanding can lead to larger societal evolution in an increasingly polarized world.

Our new home, the Causerie, is a place to listen, learn, and connect across perspectives. With this space, we are working to build a community centered around thoughtful discussion & deeper consideration of complex issues through sharing ideas and personal points-of-view.

INFO ON LOCATION/ACCESSIBILITY/GETTING HERE:

The Causerie is situated in an historical building in downtown Kitchener and as such it has some limitations. There are two steps into the front entrance and five steps inside up into the large event room. There are two gender-unspecified bathrooms and there are no steps to get to them inside the space. The bathrooms have no accessibility devices installed.

This is a scent-free event. Please refrain from using scented colognes, perfumes, hair products or soaps.

For general comfort & cleanliness at the Causerie, we ask visitors to take off their outdoor shoes & bring slippers or clean shoes to wear inside. There is a basket of slippers by the front door that visitors can borrow from as well!
