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 will migrate to painting locations once the paint-out begins.
Date: Saturday, October 14, 2023
Location: Maplewood State Park, north of Fergus Falls, MN
Time: 12:00 (Noon) – 4:00 pm, Paint Out
- Join Marc at the BEST location for Autumn colors in the region! Maplewood State Park is named after its Maple trees and has some of the brightest reds, yellow and golds in the state of Minnesota. Situated on the border of the woods and the prairie, the park is filled with a wide variety of trees, lakes and wetlands, and rolling prairie. Beaver, deer, trumpeter swans and other wildlife fill the park. Horse trails crisscross the park, so opportunities to paint horse riders exist.
Where to Meet:
We will meet at 12:00 (Noon) at the Sugar Shack (Trail Center). From there, Marc will advise on an array of painting locations within the park.
At 4pm, we will gather at the picnic grounds next to the beach. Marc will have some hot dogs and hot chocolate. And perhaps a fire to gather around. Please consider bringing side dishes or other food items to share. And, of course, we can admire each others' paintings from the day!
