ART: since its inception in 1935
See; Influences of Emma Lake Art School -Has thumbnails: Quote "Set in relative isolation on Murray Point amidst the spectacular scenery of Emma Lake, the Kenderdine Campus has always been an inspirational site for art-making. Then, in the '50s, the Emma Lake Artists' Workshop began to invite top modernist artists from New York City like Will Barnett and Jules Olitski and art critic Clement Greenberg to lead intensive studio courses. Today, that philosophy of collaboration, camaraderie and creation still beckons local and international artists to return to Emma Lake.
