Sketching Event: Midweek – Beaulieu Gardens at the Lougheed House

August 11 (Wed evening)
18:00 – 20:00, Photo Op 20:15

Note: The gardens are on the entire property, not just in the southeast corner as marked by Google Maps. Red “P” = Parking, and I believe it is free.

Reminder: Be sure to check the Events for Sketchers tab on this website for updates.

We have not had a midweek sketch yet this year. I also have mid week sketches planned for September & October.

I had originally planned to have this event at the McDougall Centre, but due to the recent protests at this location, this event has been moved to the Beaulieu Gardens at the Lougheed House 707 13 Ave SW.  

Description:  Amazing enough the house and gardens cover an area of 2.8 acres. To have this in our inner city is fabulous. The Lougheed House, as per the City of Calgary website, ” was christened with the regal name “Beaulieu” or “Beautiful Place” and was a powerful symbol of the Lougheed’s growing prestige and influence. By the early 1900s, the 2.8-acre estate included the residence, carriage house and stable, as well as a formal garden with swan sculpture fountain.”

Meeting Place: We will meet at the bottom of the stairs on the east side of the house at 20:15 for the photo op and share.
