The Great Canoe-dle Doodle

September 1-4

This Labor Day weekend BMAC encourages you to combine your creative impulses with your love of the great outdoors, by taking part in The Great Canoe-dle Doodle, sponsored by Sam’s Outdoor Outfitters and Vermont Canoe Touring Center.

Beginning during Gallery Walk on Friday evening, September 1, and continuing throughout the weekend, pick up simple sketching supplies at the museum. What you do next is up to you, but we hope you’ll get out on (or near) one of Brattleboro’s beautiful waterways — the stately Connecticut River, the rambling West River, the lovely Retreat Meadows where the two come together, the rushing Whetstone Brook in the heart of downtown, picturesque Sunset Lake, or your own favorite spot — and sketch what you see. Then come back on Monday, September 4 at 5 p.m. to share your work with other Canoe-dle Doodlers at a picnic in front of the museum. Tito’s Tacos will be here. There will be live music, a raffle (Grand Prize = $500 gift certificate to Sam’s Outdoor Outfitters), and plenty of appreciation to go around.

ADMISSION: No fee to participate. $5 for an optional supply kit, which includes a sketch pad donated by Nasco, pencils, eraser, sharpener, raffle ticket, snack provided by the Brattleboro Food Co-op, and a coupon for a discounted canoe rental at Vermont Canoe Touring Center. Additional raffle tickets available for $5 each or 5 for $20.
