Paint Out/Fresh Paint Party

Ford House Uploaded by Historic Ford Estates
Spring at Ford House is a perfect setting for painters!
The Ford House Paint Out is an outdoor event designed to re-energize the 19th-century practice of en plein air, a French phrase meaning “in the open air,” describing the process of painting a landscape outdoors. All skill levels are welcome for this daylong program. Bring your easel, paintbox, and a sunhat for a day of painting in our beautiful, 87-acre historic landscape on Lake St. Clair. You will find a great variety of subjects, including lake views, paths, historic architecture, and gardens. You will also have the opportunity to submit your paintings for juried prizes of $1,000, $500, and $250.
