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.
Link to Map of the Kings Navy Yard Park: https://goo.gl/maps/zffb3ZiL41E2 (actually a map to the ice cream parlour.) We will be across the street.
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.
