The Owen Sound River District is full of art! Visit the galleries! Meet the artists! This is a self-guided walking tour of arts venues throughout the downtown. See special exhibitions, demonstrations, and workshops. This is a free event with free parking.

We are a fully stocked art supply store located in the heart of the Owen Sound River District. Find materials for painting, printing, sculpting, drawing, and more! We have lots of artwork created by owner Amelia Kraemer available for purchase. See the studio space where encaustic, mixed media, gelli-plate, and children’s classes take place.

Join us for an in-store demonstration of Princeton Catalyst Tools. Not quite a brush. Not quite a palette knife. Catalyst™ tools are crafted from flexible silicone to allow artists a new form of expression. Available in two unique styles: Catalyst™ Wedges are ergonomically designed to fit in your hand allowing a direct interaction with your work. Catalyst™ Blades are mounted on artist brush handles offering a blend of tradition and innovation. Designed for use with heavy-bodied paints, Catalyst™ is at home with oils, acrylics, and water-miscible oils. Because they are heat-resistant, they excel with encaustics.
Learn practical tips for using Princeton Catalyst Tools to achieve captivating effects in your art.

Join Monique between 1:00-3:00pm for a drop-in, come and go, puppet making craft. Step into the enchanting world of puppetry as we craft rod puppets from everyday items! Explore the endless possibilities of transforming small boxes, containers, tubes, and ephemera into captivating characters. With the magic of bamboo skewers and brads, bring your puppets to life, animating their movements with your own hands. Let your imagination soar as you embark on a journey where ordinary objects become extraordinary performers in your very own puppet show! Recommended for children over 9 years old and adults.

Also, starting at 1:00pm at the lawn of the Community Waterfront Heritage Centre, join the Urban Easel project for the launch of the harbour banners! Win unsponsored banners from previous years!
