Cost: $300. CAD + GST includes art instruction. This year an optional art reception and showing of student art is included at the Broken Spoke Art Gallery in Maple Creek, Sask. Nikki is happy to guide you to accomodation options and dining in the region.
Nikki Jacquin a full time visual artist and art instructor will lead this excursion to paint the Cypress Hills and surrounding area. Nikki has led 2 excursions to France and 2 to Cuba. A position as guest artist in residence for 3 years in this region led to a deep love of this area of the province. Nikki hiked, painted, conducted open studio time and public art classes during her stay.
Nikki says, " I have led excursions to exotic locals but I have always dreamed of hosting some of my artist friends in my home province of Sask. On this trip there will be an opportunity to wilderness hike and paint in the tradition of the Canadian Group of Seven." We will also take in some of the local flavour during Maple Creek's Cowboy Poetry event! Other points of interest: painting Robert Symon's homestead, Lookout Point, the Gap, Battle Creek, the Great Sand Hills and more. A moderate level of fitness is suggested for this tour.
