Event Type Paddle Description Visit the view that Thomas Cole painted more than any other. There are at least 12 known paintings of Catskill Creek by Thomas Cole made throughout his artistic career. Today they hang in museums and private collections around the world including at The Metropolitan Museum of Art. The group will launch from Catskill Middle School. After a brief canoeing safety lesson and practice paddle, we will head up the Catskill Creek to Art Trail Site #3 near Atelier Restaurant.Bar (formerly Tatiana’s Restaurant). We will float and sketch in this area and enjoy the water. Paddlers will have the chance to swim if they desire. Paddling this stretch of creek is generally easy, but even a light wind can make it more difficult. Sponsoring Organization Thomas Cole National Historic Site
