Warrener introduced Schaefer to avant-garde ideas on art while both were students at the Ontario College of Art in Toronto in the early 1920s. Together they went on three sketching trips to the Pickerel River area, staying at the cabin of their friend and former teacher, Emanuel Hahn. Each artist responded in his own way to the sculptural forms and clear light of the region.
