Saint John River Driftwood Art
Inspired by Fredericton’s New Year’s Eve, Canada 150, driftwood art project that was completed by your instructor, Allison Green, students will have the opportunity to paint their own scene on driftwood. You will get to choose from a selection of driftwood pieces which were pulled from our very own Saint John River. You will learn to use the shapes and lines of the wood to make an elegant artwork to remind you of a place that has special meaning. This is a fun project that you can repeat at home or at the cottage – it gives you a great excuse to collect more driftwood!
