Grab some friends and say farewell to summer with artistic flair at this special morning painting session with Parry Sound artist Jessica Vergeer. This is Jessica’s only scheduled painting event of 2021 and will take place outdoors under a cozy Big Tent at Trestle Brewing Company on Saturday September 25th at 9am. Registration to this special event is limited to just 36 participants with individuals and groups of up to 4 per table welcome.

New to painting? Not a problem! This special event class is perfect for everyone, with Jessica leading you step-by-step through the process of painting one of her popular Skinny Trees in acrylic on canvas, from start to finish. You will leave this class with your finished 6x24 Skinny Tree painting, but not before enjoying a special Trestle Brewing Company lunch, included as part of the menu created just for this event!

Your day begins with arrival registration and social from 9-930am including adult beverages and/or coffee and tea, a fresh baked croissant and a special fresh fruit cocktail to tide you over until lunch. The painting class starts at 9:30 and runs until noon with a short break provided. You’ll have the opportunity to pick from two different colour ways for your Skinny Tree painting before the class starts, with all painting supplies provided. You will be contacted by the Trestle Team in advance to choose from a special lunch menu made just for this event. You will be contacted with menu choices and for any dietary restrictions by the Trestle team. Lunch will be served upon completion of the painting class.

We’re excited for a great day of art, great food & beverages, and most importantly, fun!

To best ensure the safety of guests and staff at this event, seating will be limited according to current COVID regulations. Also, due to the new regulations coming into effect September 22, proof of vaccination and valid ID will be verified for admission. Individuals who cannot receive the vaccine due to medical exemptions will be permitted entry with a doctor’s note.

How does an individual prove they are fully vaccinated if they are an Indigenous person and haven’t consented to providing their data to COVAX?

Ontario will support implementation of vaccine certificates for Indigenous communities whether or not they have opted to enter their data into COVax, while maintaining Indigenous data governance, control, access and possession principles.

What if I don’t want to disclose my vaccination status?

It is at the discretion of the individual to determine whether or not they would like to disclose their vaccination status. Should they make the decision not to divulge this information, they will not be permitted to access settings that require proof of vaccination.

In settings where you have to be vaccinated to attend, is a recent negative test sufficient to attend if you are unvaccinated?

A negative COVID-19 test or recent COVID-19 infection does not entitle a person to enter these settings, with narrow time-limited exceptions for testing. For the period between September 22 and October 12, 2021, it is intended that people attending wedding or funeral receptions at meeting or event spaces will be able to provide a negative rapid antigen COVID-19 test from no more than 48 hours before the event as an alternative to proof of vaccination. The only exemptions are for unvaccinated people with medical exemptions and people under 12 years old will also be permitted to enter these settings.
