Paint-Outs are open to all OPM members and their guests. Participants are not required to register, but it's helpful so we can communicate any last minute changes to locations or weather cancellations. Participants may arrive any time during the duration of the paint-out, but keep in mind that painters may spread out and be hard to find.

Description of Painting Opportunities:
The Grand Rapids Public Library sits along the shores of the Mississippi River in downtown Grand Rapids. Follow the pathway along the river for scenic vistas, head upstream for industrial views of the Blandin Dam and the paper mill, or explore the town for urban sketching. Much to paint along the this stretch of the Mississippi!

This Paint-Out is one in a Series of Paint-Outs in 2023 with Nelia Harper
OPM member, Nelia Harper will host a series of Paint-Outs in northern Minnesota this summer and autumn. The Paint-Outs are created to engage and connect Minnesotans of all ages and abilities through plein air painting and arts outreach with regular painting opportunities in collaboration with OPM and MacRostie Art Center. Nelia is a fiscal year 2023 recipient of Creative Support for Individuals grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board. This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board, thanks to legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
