The Abbotsford Arts Council and Kariton Art Gallery host an event titled Paint Mill Lake! on Saturday, Aug. 6 at Mill Lake Park.

Participants can pick up their choice of canvas or watercolour paper from the Kariton Art Gallery on Aug. 6 between 10 and 10:30 a.m., find their favourite spot, and paint the day away.

They can then bring their finished pieces back to the Kariton Art Gallery by 2 p.m. to show their artwork in an outdoor gallery from 2:30 to 4 p.m. They will also be entered into a draw to win one of two $25 gift cards to the House of Fine Art.
