Carey Institute is on the campus of the University of British Columbia. It’s a beautiful location, on a peninsula surrounded by woods, hiking trails and beaches. I found this out AFTER our class….we were all too busy painting to do much exploring. Although our hosts introduced us to authentic Chinese food and bubble tea.

We had a group of 16 students, some from Vancouver BC and surrounding area, but also some that traveled from Alberta for the workshop.

We had so much fun and made such good work. Here are 50 pictures for you to see!

Following are just a few of my favorites…There are so many. Thanks for such a good week, students!

  1. I would like to attend a silk painting workshop. I love painting and fabric and think this art form would be one worth learning more about. Are there any workshops coming up?
