Civic Holiday Ojibway Paint out

Monday August 6th 9:30 A.M. until Noon

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 tours we will be underfoot as sometimes they do scavenger hunts inside the nature centre.

There are some restrictions if you paint indoors.  There might be tours going though the exhibit area.  Please no trip hazards at your feet.  Therefore, 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.

At this time of year you can never truly predict what will happen. We go with the flow. Unless of course the sky is flowing before you even leave the house.

Here is a link to a good weather site that gives long-range, hourly, and even 15 min updates on the weather.
