Olana’s for Lovers and Art Lovers Alike

Leave the jewelry, chocolate, and flowers at the store and make your own Valentine’s Day gift this year at Olana in Hudson, a scenic 19th century Victorian estate overlooking the Hudson River.

The Olana Partnership is hosting a painting workshop called Just Desserts: Coffee and Creations on Valentine’s Day that gives you the opportunity to make your own keepsake for that special someone (the snow date will be Sunday, February 15 from 2pm to 4pm). Come alone or bring your partner; Singles and couples alike are welcome.

Hudson Valley artist and teacher Jill Obrig will guide you through an acrylic paint palette to create a piece inspired by Jim Dine’s trademark “Heart” paintings, colorful variations of the classic symbol of Valentine’s Day. Several of Dine’s pieces are featured in a number of prominent art museums, including the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and MoMA.

Indulge in a decadent dessert platter and sip on a variety of hot beverages while you work. Don’t worry about bringing a canvas, a brush, or any level of expertise; All painting supplies will be provided and there’s no artistic experience required.

The 250-acre landscape alone is a source for inspiration, not including the fact that the workshop falls on the most romantic day of the year. The house-turned-museum was designed in part by artist Frederic Church, the original owner.

Space is limited, so Olana asks that attendees pre-register by Thursday, February 12. There is a $30 fee for individuals and a $50 fee for pairs. The workshop will be held from 2pm to 4pm at the Wagon House Education Center. To register for the program or to request more information, contact Sarah Hasbrook, the education coordinator for The Olana Partnership at shasbrook@olana.org or by calling 518 828-1872 ext. 109.
