was a sucessful event!

All ages participated for that morning of painting! The artists painted a huge variety of subjects: Newton City Hall, flowering plants right next to our blue canopy station, bridges over city ponds, the Johnny Kelly statue and so much more! The location offered many interesting views including the scenic Bullough Pond and of course Newton City Hall and the Newton Free Library.

We offered everyone a free package of 8 high-quality watercolor paper samples of different companies in different weights and textures to try out. Also boards for the papers and some watercolor paint samples were available for free.

Experienced artists (A big thank you to all of you!) strolled around and gave tips and advice to painters new to painting outdoors and helped some new painters to start a painting and how to go forward.

At the end of the morning, right before the rain started to set it, our expert artists gave feedback to each painting. We had a raffle drawing and found the lucky winner of an Arches Watercolor block(20 sheets, cold pressed).
Lastly, we awarded the best five paintings of brand-new and seasoned water color painters!

Coffee, water, soda and a variety of baked goods (Thank you! to bakers!) completed the offer.

Lots of people just coming (or running) by, stayed and started painting. It was a fun morning for everyone!

The five winners of our first Paint-Out!
