Ninth Annual Historic Canyon Road Paint & Sculpt Out

Friday and Saturday, October 14th-15th, 2016

Paint & Sculpt Out Artists
Student Musical Performances

Every year, on the third Saturday of October, hundreds of artists bring paint, easels, clay, carving tools, fire, fibers, beads, precious metals, and stone to Canyon Road for this iconic event. Continuing a hundred year tradition, artists line the road to create new work “en plein air” and involve onlookers in the process.

The natural beauty of the pure mountain air, the ethereal quality of the light, and the clear vistas have proven an irresistible draw to artists for more than a century. The Paint & Sculpt Out brings together all these elements for one glorious autumnal weekend.

The event is open to all creative artists including sculptors, glass blowers, fiber artists, jewelry designers, weavers, carvers, and potters. All events are free and open to the public.
