September 14, 2017 Breakfast Meeting – Freda Lombard, Zealous Art
September 14 @ 7:00 am - 8:30 am$20
FREDA LOMBARD was born and raised in South Africa and started painting after receiving an easel as a gift in 2010. Since then, she has been on a journey, exploring and creating different painting techniques and subjects in her home studio using a variety of mediums. Her subjects are a creation of the moment which easily has her moving from one style to another.
Freda has always enjoyed inviting friends over to paint. After a few informal painting lessons which included listening to music, enjoying snacks and wine, the idea of Zealous Art & Painting pARTies was born! From home parties she branched out and now travels to her customers in the Fraser Valley and Metro Vancouver. These At-Home-Painting-pARTies are a lot of fun and a great idea for birthdays, baby showers, girl’s night in, and for business as a team building exercise. Freda is very proud to say that her new love all started with a fun night of entertaining art instruction.
Freda will do a demo creating a small piece of art. Her presentation will include details of how she started with very little, simply a paint brush and a lot of zeal, which has blossomed into something wonderful – Zealous Art!
NOTE: Our meeting will also include a short presentation from Amanda Grochowich, MCIP, RPP, regarding home based businesses. The City of Maple Ridge is in the process of reviewing and updating the regulations in the City’s Zoning Bylaw that relate to home based businesses. The intent of the review is to look at ways to modernize and improve the regulations to better facilitate existing home based businesses and to provide greater opportunities.
*Because of this additional presentation before our featured speaker, we ask that everyone arrive before 7:00am and be settled with breakfast so we can start promptly at 7:05am.
