Art of the Vine Private Wine Tours

Art of the Vine

Grape Escape Wine Tours and ArtVeritas Visual Arts Studio have collaborated to create an exclusively unique tour experience of Niagara on the Lake.  What better way to celebrate a special occasion than by creating an amazing memory of a special someone or event whilst on a tour with Grape Escape that you can take home and cherish!

You will begin your day with a Wine & Cheese Pairing at one of our favourite VQA wineries.

Your guide will then take you over to ArtVeritas Visual Arts Studio where you will take part in a 2-hour art workshop.  The art workshop included in this tour will help you to convey your nostalgia into a memorable piece of art that can be displayed and cherished. 

You will use various mediums including vintage paper, fabric, black and white photos and more to accent your one of a kind project which is perfect for any occasion. Moreover, this project includes all the pieces you will need to create your own portrait, family tree or kaleidoscope of your favourite places and landscapes. Neutral tonalities achieved with soft touches of watercolour or other paint mediums will add visual depth to your memory, and warmth to the gift for your loved ones and recipients.

Bring black and white photographs of you, loved ones, friends, places or landscapes that are special to you, printed on ordinary printing paper.  

You will be working on a: 14”x14” - 20”x 20” professional canvases or with other surfaces. Various materials and mediums for this project will be provided. In terms of Special Events, this project will be modified to the character of the event and adjusted to the needs of its participants. 

Your instructor will be Beata O’Connell who is an established artist, teacher and creator of the ArtVeritas Visual Arts Studio. 

Once the art workshop is over, your guide will continue your tour of Niagara on the Lake by visiting two more stunning wineries for wine tastings, along with a hot lunch included at one of the stops.
