Art on Snow brings colour and community to Chenail Island

The snow did not stay white outside Maison de l’île in Hawkesbury on the afternoon of Sunday, February 14.  Le Chenail Cultural Centre hosted a Painting on Snow event where attendees could get creative with a spray bottle of water mixed with food colouring and create their own pictures on the snow.

“The snow is basically a giant canvas,” said Le Chenail Artistic Director and local artist, Amanda G. Wright.

She was pleased that the event could be held in a way that allowed people to participate but keep two metres away from each other.
