Summer camp or “Art in the Park”, as Parks Canada calls it, was by far the highlight of my summer. For once, I was able to use the outdoors as an excuse to create art! On top of it, I got to do it with an amazing group of outdoorsy artists!
Hiking in the mountains with a group of artists felt like being at the right place at the right time. I enjoyed seeing everyone’s process & use of different mediums. However, the most exciting part was the reunion at the opening reception & the reveal of our work! I always find it interesting to see each artist’s unique take on the same subject.
I could go on & on about how much I loved it but here’s what my peers also had to say:

"WOW" is the first word that comes to my mind when I'm surrounded by Glacier National Park's stunning terrain. When I reach the summit, my legs are jello but my mind is blown away by the beauty and the force held by these majestic mountains. I could stare forever because this is where I belong, this is my happy place.
