Waterloo Region – Share your artistic talent and enjoy a waterfront afternoon during McDougall Cottage’s fourth annual Paint the Grand.

Artists are invited to set up their easels along the Grand River in Cambridge and paint a piece “en plein air”. Members of the community are encouraged to stroll along the Art Loop to see artists as they create.

This year’s event is June 12. Finished pieces will be on display at the Cottage and later sold at Silent Auction with all proceeds supporting the Cottage’s Musician-in-Residence program.

Artists interested in participating in Paint the Grand are encouraged to complete our Online Registration form, or contact us at
