You will also get to experience a Newfoundland kitchen party which will give you the chance to be screeched in to become an honorary Newfoundlander.
Optional activities include visiting The Rooms or the Geo Centre in St. John’s visiting a seabird sanctuary, taking a whale watching tour or visiting the historic town of Trinity where the town becomes a living theater and you are surrounded by actors and historic buildings as the play comes to life.
The art workshop: you will have the opportunity to work with various media and experiences under the supervision of Jeannette, such as: out and about art, painting or drawing local Newfoundland scenes, and creating fish prints.
