Manitou Paints!

An outdoor painting event

Local and regional artists paint outdoors for all to enjoy.  Stroll through town, visit each painter as they create. After the event, all paintings are then auctioned off to the public to benefit future Manitou Paints! events.

What is Manitou Paints

En plein air is the act of painting outside and our event features live painting on the streets and in the parks in downtown Manitou Springs followed by an online auction of all of the artwork during arts month in October.
 
The auction will take place on October 2 online at: https://www.manitouartcenter.org/Big_Loud_Silent_Auction
 
Proceeds from the auction benefit the Manitou Springs Chamber of Commerce and the artist.
