It will soon be time for my annual pilgrimage to the Moose Mountain Artist Colony in Kenosee, Sask.! I will be there Aug. 9th – 22nd, 2016. This will be my 5 year visiting and working as a visual artists in the colony. It is a special place where an artist can be part of a community of artists, create, talk art, and sell their originals. There are now 4 operational 1930’s stone cabins just east of the Kenosee Admin. Office and Info. Centre. Several local artists are available for you to visit every weekend from May long weekend to Sept. long weekend. Then there is the cabin I will be in the farthest one east. It houses a rotational selection of Saskatchewan artists from around the province on a 1 – 2 week basis. If you are curious about the goings on there you can visit their Facebook page at https://m.facebook.com/MooseMountainArtistColony/
At this time of year the Kenosee Lake Kitchen Party is on. This is a definite bonus for me. I enjoy the evening musical performances by students and professionals who come to instruct at the camp. The community square dance after each night’s performance is also a great time and all are happy to teach a new comer. Two amazing golf courses are near by also the Kenosee Lake Golf Course and White Bear Golf Course withe the nearby Bear Claw Casino.
There is so much to do in the area for families too! The Kenosee Superslides as well as Lake Kenosee itself offer relief on hot days. In the evening there is also the Prairie Dog Drive-in Theatre to visit and of course for those other days when you are wondering what to do with the family or yourself, I am offering art classes for beginners at the artist colony! I also offer private art lessons for the more advanced by appointment.
