Paddles & Paints: A Virtual Mini-Paddle Painting Workshop & Tour

May 8, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am


Ages 6 to adult
$20 per person, includes short live, interactive, family-friendly tour, live paddle-painting instruction for multiple age levels, and paddle painting kit (14” paddle, paints, two brushes, palette, template, tape)
Limited registration

A “beyond virtual” workshop that provides local families the opportunity to virtually visit the museum, with a live mini-tour of our paddle collection, and step-by-step guidance for painting your own mini-paddle at home!

Join our dynamic instructors on Zoom this May 8, 2021, at 10:00 a.m. for this hands-on, family-friendly paddle painting workshop for the Peterborough community. It’s fun for the whole family, whether you’re 6 or 66! We’ll take you through the Museum’s galleries for a live whirlwind tour of the most fascinating and inspiring paddles in the collection, and then sit down together to demonstrate the techniques and possibilities for painting your paddle while you follow along (adapted for various age and skill levels). There’s lots of time for Q&A too!

This virtual workshop is an experience for our local families. Kits include the 14” paddle, paints, two brushes, mixing palette, template, and tape.

Due to the current stay-at-home order, our curbside pickup is currently paused. We will drop off workshop kits on May 6 and 7 to the address entered during your registration (within 30km of Peterborough).

A Zoom link will be sent to all registrants by 5pm Friday. 

Please contact [email protected] with any questions.

We thank the Kawartha Credit Union Community Involvement program for its support of this workshop.
