A Natural Work of Art

Within the past 40 plus years the area has been creating the infrastructure to assistance artists in their endeavors.

The presence of the Haliburton School of the arts, a couple of galleries, a number of performing arts groups, and the Sculpture Forest are signs of the engrained artistic nature from the community.

Artists who work in the area have studios that are speckled throughout the large geographic area that is generally referred to as the Haliburton Highlands.

The roads between the studios take the participant all through the spectacular, rural scenery that is heavily populated by lakes, rivers, trees, and rocks.

In the fall season the scenery is enhanced by the cavalcade of fall colour as the leaves transform to bright reds, yellows, and oranges before falling to the ground as the trees prepare for their long winter's hibernation.

This is actually a opportunity for studio tour participants to meet up with the artists and to see them at work in their studios.

There are demonstrations of all kinds of artistic media by some of the most talented of artists in the Haliburton Highlands, Ontario, Canada.

Country life was always a factor when we looked for a place to live, so back in 2002 Heather and I quit our city jobs and purchased a small Country Resort on Halls Lake in the Haliburton Highlands of Ontario Canada. We live on the resort grounds and enjoying helping people with their all season vacation and Family Reunion planning. Our Blog supports resort guests and visitors to the area by letting them know all the things happening in the Haliburton Highlands in order to get the most out of their vacation or weekend getaway. We'll be happy to help you find what your looking for in the Haliburton Highlands. May it be things to do, places to eat, family activities, sites to see, cottages for rent or sale, almost anything to do with the Haliburton Highlands.
