PR from the Vermont Festival of the Arts announces

The Great Plein AIr Paint Out
Great Vermont Plein Air Paint Out and Art Hop This Weekend!

Event starts August 16 at 9:00 AM

On Friday, August 16 and Saturday, August 17 more than 45 artists will descend on Historic Waitsfield Village to paint, draw or sketch the beautiful local scenery. Easels will be set up in gardens, fields, and along the river and street. Artists will take inspiration from our historic covered bridge, iconic church steeple, the meandering Mad River, quaint store fronts, lush gardens, majestic mountains, rustic barns, clapboard houses & rolling fields all contained within a stroll of the Paint-Out headquarters on Bridge St.

New this year is the Paint-Out Art Hop on Friday, August 16th from 5-8 pm. Paintings completed during the day will be on sale, stores will have discounts and second sales, and restaurants will feature Paint-Out specials.
