AT THE KANANASKIS HOSTEL IN THE BEAUTIFUL ROCKY MOUNTAINS

Join Sandy Blass for a weekend surrounded by the majestic Rocky Mountains in Kananaskis Country. As Sandy guides you to tap into your inspiration we will discover together the wonder of our own creativity.

Take this time away from the distraction and noise of city life as you learn to paint and discover the wonderful relaxing and spiritual process that is painting in watercolours.

Sandy’s paintings are stunning renditions of her beloved landscapes in the Rocky Mountains of Alberta and the West Coast of BC. She has extensive experience teaching the watercolour process in both the classroom setting and private instruction. You will learn as a group and receive one-on-one tips as Sandy first shows you watercolour painting techniques and then as she makes her way to each of you as you paint.

ALL LEVELS OF ARTISTIC ABILITY WELCOME!!!

The Kananaskis Hostel provides comfortable amenities in a gorgeous location, that we will have all to ourselves, and is just an hour’s drive from Calgary. You will be inspired by it. Choose either private accommodation (up to triple occupancy) or come with a group of friends and stay in one of the dorms. Enjoy home-cooked healthy cuisine, some wine, treks in the forest, or simply a fireside conversation.

All enthusiastically brought to you by…

sandy blass & anita szuster!

Come away and enjoy a time you will never forget.
