February Classes at The Camellia

What is a Summer-loving person supposed to do in February in Northwestern Ontario?  Take a Painting class at #TheCamellia. 

You know how Spring & Summer come along, and you have a kazillion things to pack into those few months? As #Cottage Paint is low VOC, ( does not smell stinky and offgas and make you sick)  and water-based, you can just put a dropcloth around your furniture and start painting!! No need to wait until Spring or Summer.
