This summer, Thursdays are ART DAYS!

Each Thursday, Danielle volunteers at 9:30-11:30am to teach different techniques in watercolour to campers of all ages, sign up at The Outpost! Maximum 20 people. All supplies are provided by the NHE and the Friends of Killarney Park. Donations to the park are always accepted.

Art in the Park! Painting Trees with a full house of amazing folks using my rain-plan for the week at 'The Dog House' near the observatory! We used the same photo source and I encouraged individuality.... I love how our little woods is so diverse! Special thanks to Jeremy Pawson for loaning us the nice building with ergonomically correct chairs for any alternate rain plan date for this NHE Program. @killarneypp @ontarioparks @friendsofkillarneypark @sportsmansinnkillarney @killarneymountain @sudburytourism @artsudbury #philosopherswalk #studio #watercolorpainting
