DOP Meandros Chapter 168 Hosts Sold-Out Painting Workshop

March 20, 2024

MONTREAL – The Daughters of Penelope (DOP) Meandros Chapter 168 hosted a sold-out painting workshop by Canadian artist Katerina Mertikas on March 10. Despite the snowy weather, the 21 participants arrived with excitement and took their seats in front of a blank canvas, ready to recreate one of Mrs. Mertikas’ paintings. They were guided step-by-step, with a visual example as well as tips and advice. As they learned about colors and placement, they slowly created their masterpiece. At the end of the lesson everyone enjoyed each other’s paintings, remarking on how the same scene can be very different.
