2 Summer Opportunities, Oakville Art Camps or Tuscany Tour ?

A Few Spots Left



We are all thinking about Spring and its unpredictability, but I am thinking of Summer and 2 things for sure (no, not death and taxes!):

We are excited about all our preparations for our:

1. SUMMER FINE ART CAMP at the OAKVILLE HARBOUR and our annual trip to

2. TUSCANY FAMILY TOUR, which includes VENICE this year.IMG_9512

“What  a job you have!” I often hear. Yes, I do. I plan all the things I love to share with others, with all the people I love, in places I love! I am blessed.

However, there is a lot of planning and personal care that go into all of these events and tours. Because we have a passion for ART, CHILDREN & TRAVEL, we spend the entire year planning and putting every consideration into making these two events as beautiful and memorable as possible, and because I am committed to small groups, we can customise and incorporate some of our guests own requests. For example, we can have a chef come to our country house and prepare a meal for us while we are out sightseeing, or perhaps you enjoy like a day at the villa and pool by yourself and watch the chef prepare a 5 course gastronimic meal?

Children’s Art Lessons : Parent Testimonial

Avery has never been this engaged in any other after school activity. This class has been great for Avery’s focus and self confidence. He looks forward to Dawn-Angela’s lesson every week! The opportunities that Dawn-Angela arranges for students to show their work professionally — greatly affects their self confidence and sense of self esteem.

Children’s Art Lessons : Parent Testimonial

Dawn-Angela has a real gift for connecting with her young students.  My daughter, Kayla, has literally begged to be enrolled in Dawn-Angela’s classes each new session.  Kayla also has had the opportunity to attend summer camp sessions over the last two years and the pieces she has created are truly amazing. Our home is now full of so much incredible art we don’t know where to hang the next pieces :-).  Dawn-Angela has not only given our daughter a strong foundation in the arts but also a real confidence in herself and what she can achieve.

Steven Sapir, parent.
