7th Annual Hancock Park District Plein Air Paint-Out
October 16 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm
This is an opportunity to join plein air artists from around the area for a day of painting the McKinnis farmstead, woods, and prairie areas in this beautiful park. Adult artists working in all media are welcome; there is no registration fee and it is a non-competitive event. This year’s paint-out will again be held in conjunction with the annual Autumnfest, with costumed interpreters and farm animals. The public is invited to watch artists at work throughout the park, then view finished paintings at the end of the day. In case of rain, there are several places to work under cover.
