Art and wine lovers are enjoying a unique blend of Okanagan entertainment this summer at picturesque Okanagan wineries.

Beginner to experienced art lovers are celebrating the colours of the Okanagan at workshops hosted by A Crush of Colour. Each workshop starts with a wine tasting after which participants provided with the materials and instruction to paint “En Plein Air” in the style of the masters.

Crush of Colour is a project by Jennifer Pickering, an artist based in Kelowna with an MFA in studio arts from UBC Vancouver. According to the artist, “The workshops are the perfect opportunity to relax on a patio with a stunning view, try your hand at painting and learn to see colour as you’ve never experienced it before.”

Crush of Colour will be coming to Kelowna at the View Winery and Tantalus Vineyards from July 17—August 9 and Sonoran Estate in Summerland August 23—28.
