In 2015 we offered two paint nights and they were a smashing and stellar success. Forty artists created beautiful paintings of the forest here at White Pines and they have their own keepsake memory to cherish. In April 26, 2016 we had our first of three Paint Nights being offered this year and it was a wonderful success as well.
On September 6 we will have our 2nd Paint Night of 2016 and it will showcase a different painting but all based on the same theme, "Come Look at the Pines". The painting for the September 6 Paint Night is pictured here. We will also be offering a 3rd Paint Night this year, on November 1st, and that painting is being created now by our artist in residency, Rae Ann and will be available soon on our website and on our Facebook page, so you will be able to see exactly what you will be painting.
Whether you are single, bringing a friend or are a married couple, what could be more fun than spending a night in the beautiful White Pines Forest in a cozy log cabin, enjoying both dinner and breakfast at the landmark lodge restaurant, and relaxing as you learn to paint a canvas of the very pine trees you are surrounded by, all while sipping a glass or two of wine?
It doesn't matter if you've never picked up a paint brush or are looking to polish your painting skills, Rae Ann Hoehn invites you to join her in this creative journey as you explore this easy style of painting in the great outdoors. You are guaranteed to take home some wonderful memories, and your own painting of the White Pines Forest!
Rae Ann has a rich and varied background as an art teacher for over thirty years in the Fox Valley area. From public schools to community college and private instruction, she is well prepared to guide you gently through this experience in a friendly and open, small group setting. Her goal is to see that each and every one of you has fun and to show you how easy it is to paint.
