A Plein Air Event
Fine Art in Fresh Mountain Air
En plein air is the act of painting outside. Join us for live painting on the streets and in the parks in downtown Manitou Springs followed by a silent auction at the Manitou Art Center. Proceeds from the auction benefit the Manitou Chamber of Commerce and the artist. An artists thank you reception follows the auction for all participating artists.
This invitation-only event brings artists from around the region to Manitou Springs for an art-filled day outdoors. Stroll around our historic town and watch artists at work. Then stop by the Manitou Art Center from 2-3 pm for a chance to purchase original works created during the event.
If you are an artist and would like to participate, please email your bio and 5 examples of your art to firstname.lastname@example.org or ask a local Manitou Springs for sponsorship.
