Skyline paint out-Weeks Memorial Garden

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.
