Saturday & Sunday Sept. 29th & 30th
Navy Yard Park Paint Out
Time: 10:00 – 4:00
We’ve been asked to take part in this event by the town of Amherstburg. The park is across the street from the Ice Cream Parlour.

You might wonder why we volunteer in these events.
- We paint in these parks free all year round. This is an opportunity to give back to the community.
- It is an honour to be asked to take part, it shows we are a respected and recognized group.
- It gives us, as artists, an opportunity to educate the public about our art form.
- It’s an opportunity to network with the public. Hand out those business cards!
- We can tell the public of upcoming group and personal shows.
When we do weekend events such as this we don’t go out on the following Monday. The reasons for this is that we need you to take part on the weekend if possible. Even if it’s only for a few hours.

Bert Weeks Memorial Gardens
Monday September 3rd, 9:00 a.m.
Bert Weeks Memorial Gardens at the foot of Parent street on Riverside Drive.
Come out and paint the Detroit Skyline with us on Monday. There is also the historic pump station and naturalized areas of the river nearby.
This is a great location with no parking meters. However, the lot can get full fast. The parking is free for 2 hours. You should be within sight of your car. There are some shade trees nearby. I didn’t see any washrooms, but there are many fast food chains on Wyandotte St east.

At Ojibway we may sketch indoors. Depending upon the weather you may paint indoors or out. 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 tours we will be underfoot as sometimes they do scavenger hunts inside the nature centre.
There are some restrictions if you paint indoors. Please no trip hazards at your feet, no easels or equipment on the floor. You may bring in a chair to sit on. We suggest that you treat this as an indoor sketching opportunity. 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 after 10 a.m.
