Art Classes

Try your hand at something new! Join Brubacher House 2022 Artist-in-Residence Yulia Balobanova for a fun series of June workshops as we capture the beauty of Brubacher House with pastel. No painting experience necessary--Yulia will guide us through the entire process from start to finish.

We will begin each event with a guided tour of the 1850s' Mennonite heritage house (30 min), and then gather outdoors for a relaxing afternoon of painting on the museum grounds overlooking Columbia Lake (2 hr. art workshop for adults, 1 hr. for kids)
