The Painted Kayaker Tour


Have you have ever wanted to learn to paint, but never had the opportunity? Well here it is! Picture yourself paddling along the picturesque St Ann’s Bay surrounded by eagles, beaches and waterfalls. Now picture yourself sitting by the waterfall or beachside and learning the process of painting, gently guided by your host Kenny for the day.

Kenny has been professionally making a living creating for the past 25 years. An art teacher at Cape Breton University, Kenny is well versed in getting his message passionately across to his students.

Kenny says, “Over the years I’ve discovered that artistic vision can come from anywhere and at any time. If there’s anything I’ve learned as an artist, it’s to be open to the world around you and concepts for new works will present themselves without effort.”
