Craftsbury Common, VT green - Michelle Warren

Vermont Plein Air Paint the Common

A Vermont Plein Air Event in the Northeast Kingdom / NEK

The Craftsbury Farmers’ Market & Plein Air Northeast Kingdom are planning our 2nd annual Vermont Plein Air Paint the Common event for August 19, 2017, 10 AM – 1 PM.

Artists will position themselves in various locations on the Craftsbury Common green and paint during the hours of 10 AM to 1 PM. Visitors are welcome to watch the magic each artist brings to their artwork. At a subsequent market (date TBD) artists will be offering these paintings for sale.

Vermont provides the perfect en plein air subjects with her pastoral scenes, mountains, covered bridges, waterways, villages, farmers markets, festivals… One can find a suitable Vermont plein air subject just about everywhere you look.

The Craftsbury Common town green is one of the most stunning Vermont venues for just about any outdoor activity. The green is literally surrounded by a white post fence and lots of white buildings including Craftsbury Academy, the United Church of Craftsbury and Sterling College.

Although not required, we would love to know you are interested or planning to come to this event. You can let us know here.
