WEST KELOWNA, October 17, 2021 – Enjoy a full Okanagan wine experience with Grizzli Winery’s Creative Art Series: Paint Class with Randall Young on Sunday, October 17 from 2:00pm-5:30pm. $5.00 from every ticket sold will be donated to the Canadian Mental Health Association Kelowna.
It’s always a little bittersweet to say goodbye to summer, but the end of summer also brings the start of another great season in the Okanagan: fall! Fall is harvest season in the Valley and lush vineyards are ripe for the picking. When fall arrives, you can feel it in the air. The air is a little crisp and you’ll suddenly find yourself reaching for a sweater and searching for cozy activities.
Cozy up this fall at Grizzli Winery for a wine and painting workshop, led by local Okanagan artist Randall Young. In this small and intimate 3.5-hour workshop, learn to paint a grizzly bear, inspired by the name Grizzli Winery. Grizzli’s namesake has a historical association, as ‘Kelowna’ is the Syilx Okanagan Nation’s name for grizzly bear.
- Small and safe class size
- Guided painting session for any level of artistic expertise. From beginner to experienced artist, all are welcome!
- Glass of wine
- Tour and tasting at Grizzli
- All art supplies included

Randall Young is a visual artist with roots in two provinces.
A childhood spent in the foothills of Alberta honed his deep appreciation of nature. He spent most summer weekends camping, fishing and hiking in the towering Rockies near Banff, Alberta with his parents, brother and three sisters. This constant, calming refuge rooted Randall’s great love and closeness to his family. His keen, observing eyes drank in the colours of nature and are poured upon the canvas in landscapes, great beasts and riotous skies.
Randall left the foothills a few years ago. For a while he stayed in the Crowsnest Pass where he developed a fond and strong bond with the arts community of those rugged, windy hamlets. Now making his home in the South Okanagan, Randall is continually inspired by the natural splendour of the region and the calm lifestyle. While enjoying an artistic exploration of the landscapes and local flavours, Randall Young creates with increasing exuberant personal expression.
“I am fascinated by the notion that nature and its inhabitants exist as temporal layers in our landscape. Sometimes we see things unchanged in form as they might have been 10,000 years ago. At other times, a remnant of the past, still extant in the changing landscape; is a shadow undercoat of life in the valley. There is a poignant beauty in that tension, that insistence for existence. We become aware that, without our continual struggle to exist here, those who have walked before will, once more, live in the foreground.
I would like to acknowledge that we are on the traditional, ancestral, unceded territory of the Syilx/Okanagan People.” – Randall Young
