August 6 @ 9:30 am - 12:30 pm


Paddles and Palettes: Widewater State Park

Do you enjoy both the arts and the outdoors? Join us for Paddles and Palettes, this program combines kayaking (a 2 hour, beginner-level paddle) and painting (1 hour of watercolor exploration)!

  • Guests will first have the opportunity to go out on Aquia Creek in sit-on-top kayaks with State Park interpreters, observing wildlife and learning the history of the park along the way.
  • Next, guests will have the chance to create a small watercolor painting: one based on provided examples, a design of your own making, or just enjoy the properties of water and paint however you like!
  • Both activities will be preceded by safety and other introductory-level instructions. All levels of paddlers and artists are encouraged to join!
  • Group limit of 10 participants.
  • Registration cost is $20 per person and must be paid prior to the event.

Reservations required. Please call the park at 540-288-1400 to make a reservation.
