Fort Calgary is a National Historic Site at the Bow and Elbow rivers. The confluence of the rivers has been a historical and cultural gathering place from the first Indigenous people thousands of years ago to the arrival of the North-West Mounted Police in 1875. When you attend an event here, you are invited into a rich and layered history at this site. Parking – Fort Calgary lot is a paid lot but for our Plant event partnership, we are provided with a parking code which will be valid for Sundays Plant events ONLY. Parkplus will not issue a ticket as long as license plates are registered within the same day. Please DO NOT forget to register their license plates on your way in/out or you will get a ticket from ParkPlus. Sometimes people also get tickets if they enter their license plate number wrong after using the code meaning if they miss a letter or number of their license plate, Parkplus machines won't recognize right or wrong plates as they are not designed that way. YayMaker and Fort Calgary will NOT be responsible for any tickets issued as you are provided a Parking Code to use for this event. Parking code for Sunday PlantNite will be 11046 Museum Entry Tickets— If you'd wish to explore the museum; there will be a $2.00 discount applied on each entry ticket; to get the discounted rate you'll just have to show your Plant Nite Ticket.
Art has always been an outlet for me, from making music to drawing and painting. I would literally draw, paint and write on anything I can lay my hands on. I have painted on rocks and glued googly eyes on them as well as leftover firewood. And then my fur baby and I would cycle around the city to leave these pieces in random spots. My subject matter mostly comes from my life experiences. Art to me is another form of expressing myself and sharing a message with the world. I graduated from Victoria University, Australia in Multimedia Systems majoring in Digital Arts and about a decade ago in Montreal, I was introduced to oil paint and started transferring my imaginations with oil instead. At this moment, I was also doing freelance fashion and wedding photography and it was mind blasting!! With all that combined – I took art and mixed media to a whole new level! Now in Calgary, I have expanded my horizons over to Acrylic Paint and Wood Burning – pyrography and paint !?!?!?! Somebody, please calm me down ;p On that note, I am very excited to share my passion and energy as a Paint Nite Instructor and looking forward to seeing all your beautiful personalities come through on our big blank canvas!
