Skyline paint out-Weeks Memorial Garden

Monday August 7th

Meeting between 9:00 and 10:00 leave when you want.

Bert Weeks Memorial Gardens is located at the foot of Parent street on Riverside Drive.  Google map link:  https://goo.gl/maps/nfAodhbZJcx

Come out and paint the Detroit Skyline with us on Monday. This is a great location with no parking meters. The parking is free for 2 hours. You will be within sight of your car at all times. There are shade trees nearby. I didn’t see any washrooms, but there are many fast food chains on Wyandotte St east.

So far according to this weather site, it looks like a possibility of rain, so keep an eye on the sky.

Plein Air Paint Out – Between Colchester Village and Oxley

Monday, July 24th 10:00 AM until 2:00 PM

Special thanks to Ann Ducharme,  for the invite to her lovely property. This beautiful wooded landscaped ravine will remind you of a fairy land, with many flowers, bubbling brook and waterfall.

(Note: give yourself time this is an hours drive from Windsor.)

  • Take Walker Rd South to Harrow
  • Turn right at light
  • Go two blocks turn left (Smith’s Funeral Home is on left)
  • Go to stop sign in Colchester turn left (this is county rd 50)
  • Ann’s in 1.6 Km on your right right after a curve and slight rise in the road.  The driveway sneaks up on you due to obscured sight lines.
  • The lot has two entrances and is heavily wooded, the house is hard to see from the road.  Look for two one-way signs that mark her driveway
