From June 27 – September 3, Fridays to Tuesdays, participants can “Meet the Artist” from 10 am -11 am to chat about art and view original works at the Hattie Cove Visitor Centre. Each artist will be sharing expertise with on-site workshops, including; transforming an object into an ornament; drawing caricatures; basket weaving; building a fairy house; photography sessions; and painting wild watercolours. Two-hour workshops take place Saturdays at 1 pm in the Visitor Centre. Workshops are free with park entry, and unless it’s a camera, all materials are supplied…you bring the inspiration!
This summer, visitors to Pukaskwa National Park, just east of Marathon, will have the opportunity to meet artists from across Ontario. Visitors can explore hidden driftwood beaches, dramatic rocky headlands, and the ever-changing moods of Lake Superior, and experience the park’s fantastic line-up of artists and workshops.
