Paint Out: Doors Open Event at Navy Yard Park

Saturday & Sunday Sept. 30, Oct. 1.
Navy Yard Park Paint Out
Amherstburg, Ontario
Doors Open Event

Time: 10:00 – 4:00

We’ve been asked to participate in this event by the Doors Open committee.  The park is located 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 participate, 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 inform the public of upcoming group and personal shows.

Notice:
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 participate on the weekend if at all possible.  Even if it’s only for a few hours.

Please let me know if you are going so that I can look for you.  You may also phone my cell on the day should you have trouble locating us.  My cell is 519-564-4361

See you this Saturday and/or Sunday!
Happy Painting,
Elizabeth
