Join us for this unique Plein Air “Paint Out” in Palmer Lake, CO, celebrating the camaraderie of fellow painters from across the front range. Participants may select from any location around the lake or from 4-5 previewed areas around the town. We will start the day at the park Gazebo to the sounds of live Scottish bagpipes being played on the Lake’s bridge while registering and setting up plein air kits at painter’s chosen locations for the morning painting period. After a BBQ lunch (included) and shorter afternoon painting period, submissions for judging will begin at the tent area at 2:30 PM where painters receiving awards for first through third places, receiving $500, $350 and $200 awards respectively.

After the awards ceremony, all Plein Air participants are invited to join a 2 hour afternoon special event from celebrated landscape painter and Coors Western Art Show “Young Guns” artist Michael Magrin, with a discussion and demonstration on “Painting Big Skies” (included). Attendees will enjoy Michael’s contemporary take and unique portrayal of western sky and cloudscapes which blend nostalgia with tranquility through his use of bold shapes. Michael’s background as an instructor and mentor has provided many opportunities for artists to learn from his thought process and traditional techniques that capture a modern vision. Michael’s work is represented by the Broadmoor and Abend Galleries.
