Celebrate the upcoming Bill Johnston's Pirate Days with a nautically themed Vino & Van Gogh event from 6-8 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 11! Presented by betterArts and held at Better Farm in Redwood, this event will be held OUTSIDE and offers an extension option for any artists who would like to bring their child or children along!
Instructor Angela Silva, a teacher at Alexandria Bay Central School, will lead the guided, outdoor paint class. Adults will create a large anchor painting -- and for those who bring their children along, the kids will create a smaller painting that can be attached to the anchor painting (see image above!).
As always, materials will be provided; as will bottomless beverages (wine for adults, iced tea for the children!) and endless finger foods to delight parents and children alike.
Bill Johnston was a renegade after the Patriots War who blew up the British steamer, Sir Robert Peel, hid among the 1000 Islands, and was hunted by US and Canadian authorities. The annual Bill Johnston’s Pirates Days is a 10-day celebration commemorating some of his exploits; featuring family fun and special events ranging from an authentic pirate invasion and sword-fighting to live music and arts installments. Channel your inner pirate and kick off Pirates Days at Better Farm!
