Hey, Painters - Start the New Year with a bang!

  • January 4-8 (Friday to Tuesday) from 9:30-11:30 am.

We are hosting the “5-Day Painting Challenge” at the Courthouse Arts Gallery so we can have fun doing it together: Five days, painting every morning at the Old Courthouse - only room for 12 painters, so pre-register now. (Wouldn’t this make a great Christmas present?)

Simple as 1-2-3:

  1. 2019 NVCAC membership is required. If you have not renewed yet, you can pay online at NicolaValleyArtsCouncil.com using the Membership/Donation button. Bonus - the $15 fee gets you a charitable tax receipt.
  2. Register online to reserve your space, using the registration button on the Home page at NicolaValleyArtsCouncil.com
  3. Sign up here to get Mike’s supply list and more information: 5-day Painting Challenge from January 4th to 8th, 2019.

Mike Svob is a Vancouver painter that we will try to bring in for a workshop this year. He is working on building an online art course for acrylic painters, and the “5-Day Painting Challenge” is a sample set of 5 daily video lessons. He is an excellent teacher and paints in bright bold colours – see his paintings here: https://www.pinterest.ca/jonopalski/mike-svob-paintings/



  • January 4-8 (Friday to Tuesday) from 9:30-11:30 am.
  • $50 Registration fee. Payment is online only, as the Gallery is closed over the holidays. This is a CHALLENGE to us to paint every day – so this fee is all-or-nothing and non-refundable. If it happens that you can’t attend any days, you can request a charitable tax receipt in lieu.
  • We will be using Mike Svob’s set of online videos to get us started each day.
  • There will be a facilitator (not instructor) on site each day to make sure everything goes smoothly - local artists, Jean Kiegerl and Gale Simpson, have volunteered.
  • Artists aged 14 and under are welcome but must come with an adult artist, both registered in the event. Note that this is an adult program, not like the Art Buds children’s program.
  • We will meet at the Courthouse on Jan. 4 by 9:30 (doors will be open at 9) Note that you will need five painting surfaces approximately 8”x10” for the Challenge. We will have some canvases or panels available for purchase, various sizes. Heavy watercolour paper, gesso-ed on both sides would also work for this. We will have tables and table easels on site, bring your paints, brushes, paper towels, apron, water containers, etc. We can leave our gear on site for the 5 days, so it is ready when we arrive each morning. The videos are short, but once we get started, we will want to keep painting, so we have booked 2 hours.

  • If we want to stay longer or bring in lunch, we can arrange that while we are there. All day painting, just imagine! It would almost be an art retreat, wouldn't it?
