Crooked Tree Arts Center Revamps ‘Paint Grand Traverse’ to Plein Air Paint Out

The Crooked Tree Arts Center based in Traverse City and Petoskey is shifting gears when it comes to a summer tradition. The Traverse City location’s Paint Grand Traverse is focused on safety Paintoutguidelines this summer through a Plein Air Paint Out.

The French en plein air, or “in open air” involves a style of painting using natural light while outside. Artists capture the ephemeral atmospheric and lighting conditions.

The plein air artists will be painting outside downtown Traverse City and out on Old Mission Peninsula on August 8th through 9th. The artists will then upload their work to the Crooked Tree Arts Center on August 10th through 16th for people to virtually view.

For a socially distanced viewing, people can come to the Crooked Tree Arts Center in Traverse from August 17th to September 12th. There will be a limited number of people allowed inside at a time and masks are required.

All proceeds will benefit the Crooked Tree Arts Center and its programs for adults and kids.
