Awenda Inspired!

September 23, 2023 @ 10:30 am - 4:30 pm


Join us on September 23, 2023 as the Friends of Awenda Park welcome students from the Ontario College of Art & Design (OCAD) University to Awenda Provincial Park.

Students and Faculty are following in the footsteps of numerous artists who have visited Awenda and the surrounding southern Georgian Bay area. Awenda has long since been a source of inspiration for upcoming and iconic Canadian artists such as Tom Thomson, who painted the park’s Giant Tomb Island not once, but a record three times!

Painting and drawing en plein air, students will spend the day out in the park creating their own Awenda Inspired! masterpiece. At 4:15pm, join us at the park’s Trail & Activity Centre for an informal viewing of their work in progress. A group exhibition of works created from the day will be displayed at the OCAD campus in Toronto in Winter 2024.

For further information please email or call (705)-549-2231 ext. 228
