Mariemont Paint-Out to capture beauty on canvas

Saturday, Oct. 15, 6-9 p.m, and Sunday, Oct. 16, 1-4 p.m., Women’s Art Cultural Center

The Woman’s Art Cultural Center will show off the results of its invitation to artists, young and old, to take part in the Mariemont Paint-Out.

Adults, as well as junior and senior high school students, may participate. Artists will select an outdoor location in Mariemont and parts of Newtown Pike, and paint a landscape or landmark. Artists will then submit their work to judges.

Len Weakley, a board member of the Woman’s Art Club Foundation, was instrumental in securing a $2,500 Helm’s Trust donation for prize money. Barbara Weyand, a former board member, is sponsoring the third prize ($500), and 50 West Brewing and Dilly Bistro, Bar and Bottle Shop and the Mariemont Preservation Foundation are providing additional awards.

An instructor from the Barn will present a demonstration and orientation for students and beginners from 8:30 to 10 a.m. Oct. 15. Facility size limits class attendees to 10 adults and 10 students.

Registration for the Paint-Out ranges from $20 to $40. Students will receive a plein-air kit, including panels, paints and brushes.
