Paint night for SVDP

The Glengarry News - - The Opinion Page - - Steven War­bur­ton

If you’ve ever wanted to try paint­ing but never got around to it, then you may want to come out to The At­lantic restau­rant in Alexan­dria Sun­day, Dec. 9.

Art in­struc­tor Navy Chad­sey, who has a busi­ness called Cre­ate With Navy, will be lead­ing a “paint night” there from 3 to 5 p.m. as a ben­e­fit for the St. Vin­cent de Paul So­ci­ety’s food bank.

Ms. Chad­sey lives in Em­brun but grew up in Dalkeith and at­tended Glen­garry District High School. She or­ga­nized the event to give some­thing back to her com­mu­nity and “to en­sure that peo­ple are fed this hol­i­day sea­son.”

Whether you’re a sea­soned pain­ter or have never even picked up a brush, you are wel­come to at­tend. “A lot of peo­ple are in­tim­i­dated by art,” she says. “But I love hear­ing sto­ries about peo­ple un­cov­er­ing pas­sions or hid­den tal­ents at paint nights.”

She will guide her au­di­ence through the paint­ing process. Ev­ery­one will paint a win­ter scene de­pict­ing a moun­tain­side cabin sur­rounded by trees.
