2nd Annual Art in the Park, August 11, 2012, 10:00 am to 1:00 pm
Plans are underway for the 2nd Annual Art in the Park event at Murchison Place Park in Clyde River. Mark your calendars for Saturday, August 11th, 10:00 pm to 1:00 pm. If it is raining on that day, it will be rescheduled to Saturday, August 18th, same time.
This is your chance to enjoy your artistic hobby/profession in the company of others who enjoy art within this inspiring park among the trees and be serenaded with classical violin music by Rene Dahn. Artistic activities could include painting, photography, crafting, drawing/sketch, writing, knitting, crocheting or needlepoint. Maybe you just enjoy watching art being created; if so, we welcome you to come along.
Last year, the event attracted artistic folks from across PEI, along with those visiting from other provinces and countries.
Clyde River artist Julia Purcell will offer a group art class. She will bring along a few extra supplies just in case you don’t have your own and you are brave enough to dip a brush into some color and make your first artistic mark on the world. That’s how everyone starts, even the great ones.
Murchison Place Park is located on the east corner (among the trees) of Trans-Canada Highway and Clyde River Road. Parking is available at Burnside Presbyterian Church, just across the road. Take along your own chair, any supplies to do your art and a picnic lunch for yourself. Beverages will be provided. If you have any questions about the event, email email@example.com
