Come on out this summer as artists take to the streets of Historic Ellicott City to participate in our plein air event!
We are proud to partner with Art in Ellicott City and the Howard County Arts Council to host Paint It! Ellicott City. Also known as a paint-out, this event brings artists outside to paint directly from life, without the aid of photography. The weekend draws many spectators to Main Street’s sidewalks.
Spectators can follow the artists as they set up their easels around Ellicott City’s historic district and paint the picturesque mill town. The event culminates in an exhibit at the Howard County Center for the Arts.
