At Ojibway we have the option of sketching indoors. So depending upon the weather you may paint outdoors, or sketch indoors.
However, we will not know if we can sketch inside until we get there, so don’t count on being able to do that. If there are school tours we will be underfoot as sometimes they do scavenger hunts inside the nature centre.
There are some restrictions if you paint indoors. Because there might be tours going though the exhibit area, there can be no “trip hazards.” Therefore, no easels or equipment on the floor. You can bring in a chair to sit on.
We suggest that you treat this as a sketching opportunity rather than a full fledged painting event. Bring sketchbooks, coloured pencils, watercolour pencils, and anything that you can safely confine to your lap.
Of course, if you wish to work outside you may bring all your gear. The washrooms will be available.
