Join professional artist Patrick Guindon as he leads a workshop on painting in a folk-art style, using thick black lines and big, bold shapes and colours. You’ll walk away with a completed painting you’ll be proud to gift to someone this holiday season!
Patrick teaches workshops so that every artist can express their own voice and style, whether you’re brand new to painting, a little nervous, or a seasoned pro. He’ll teach you the method, and guide you through techniques specific to your own needs in the moment.
The workshop begins with about 10-15 minutes of instruction, and then a solid hour and a half to work on your piece. Some artists work faster than others, so the allotted time is around two hours in total for the workshop.

Patrick Guindon has been teaching for the past fourteen years in both traditional school systems and in private art class and workshops. After leaving his career as an Ontario elementary teacher in 2020, he moved with his partner and four young kids to Prince Edward Island, where he’s set up an art process studio for children and paints professionally. Patrick’s focus as an artist and teacher is always on the process and on bringing out the confidence, capabilities, and voice of every artist he works with.

While the King is away, the people of England suffer under the oppressive rule of his tax-happy brother, Prince John.
Only a straight arrow like Robin Hood, the best archer in the land, can save England!
By stealing from the rich and giving back to the poor, Robin keeps the spirit of justice alive, with the help of a few friends along the way, including Maid Marian, Friar Tuck, and Little John. But what if the Prince and the dreaded Sheriff of Nottingham lay a trap for our hero?

With all the humour and fun you’ve come to expect, DuffleBag hits the mark with this on-target tale of derring-do!

 

Kings Playhouse acknowledges that we operate on the traditional and unceded territory of the Mi'kmaq People. Epek'witk, the Mi'kmaq name for Prince Edward Island is one of the seven districts making up the region of Mi'kma'ki in eastern Canada. This particular part of Epek'witk is known as Samkook, which means 'the place where we land'. We are grateful for the opportunity to live, work and create in this beautiful place that has been stewarded for generations by the Mi'kmaq People.
