Paint Party for Kids

Denise Lefebvre
Sat, Sept 23rd, 10 AM

A fun guided painting party for children age 6-13!


Paint Party for Adults

Denise Lefebvre
Sat, Sept 23rd, 1 PM
St Albert Place Painting Studio

A fun guided painting party for adults!


Painting parties have been popping up around the globe over the last few years, each with their own creative twist and class structure to make them all unique. It has become the latest trend in the entertainment industry, combining artistic energy with friends and strangers alike, all coming together to collectively combine their creative juices for a couple hours.

Local artist Denise Ann Lefebvre decided to ride this wave back in 2014 with her own company Red Pepper Painting Parties. She's filled her weekends and evenings over the years with private, corporate and public painting parties for participants that range in age from 5 - 105 (yep, her oldest participant Dan turned 105 in 2015)

Red Pepper Painting Parties are different from most of the companies out there because of the imagery she provides for her group. She spends up to 2 days creating just the right image, and draws the outline of it on each sanded canvas, so this experience is not only fun and stress free, but also a beautiful work of art that one would be proud to sign and hang proudly on the wall.

Denise was born in Edmonton in 1970, and after 6 years of art school in Calgary, AB, she took some time to travel and indulge in a few adventures before settling down in 1999 with a successful career as a free-lance artist, back in Edmonton once agin. She keeps herself busy teaching with her painting company, performing live painting at events and fundraisers, creating hand-made chalkboard art menu boards, and commissions in oils and acrylics. Denise is involved in several art shows throughout the year and sells her work out of galleries and local bistros and restaurants.

Hanji Art Workshop

Eunju Park
Saturday, Sept 23rd, 1 PM
Meet at St. Albert Art Gallery and then we will walk to the Multi Craft Studio
at St. Albert Place


Eunju Park grew up in South Korea and after living in St. Albert, Canada for a decade, she started to feel disconnected from her heritage. She began to explore traditional artifacts in an attempt to reconnect with her Korean roots, discovering Hanji Art. Hanji is a traditional handmade paper produced from Mulberry Trees and often used to create two-dimensional and three-dimensional art. Eunju carefully tears the paper into abstracted shapes crafting positive messaging in Korean characters and images. 

“The process of creating Hanji Art is extremely therapeutic for me and I have an invigorated passion to share this centuries old vibrant paper with the modern world.”


Cold Porcelain Clay Flowers

Sarah Valencia
Sun, Sept 24rd, 11 AM
St. Albert Place Painting Studio

Welcome to a beginner-friendly class where you will get the chance to sculpt your own flower. 

These flowers are made of cold porcelain clay. Though the name sounds fancy, this clay consists of common household materials. I love working with cold porcelain because it is an easily accessible medium. All you need to get started is a little glue, some cornstarch, and creativity.
