Fall Color Week is all about painting! Now entering its third year, the hugely popular painting extravaganza in Acadia National Park with publisher Eric Rhoads is just around the corner. Act fast, however, because there’s a limit of 100 participants, and only a few places remain!

Between October 6 and 13, a lucky group of 100 painters will converge in Acadia National Park in Maine with publisher Eric Rhoads to focus on what matters most: painting, learning, and camaraderie. That’s right! There’s no competition, no show, and absolutely no drama — a mantra that many plein air artists and enthusiasts embrace.

Registration for the event is still open, but spots are quickly filling up as more and more realize that Fall Color Week is simply a can’t-miss event. Rhoads started the event for “busy painters who need a break, a chance to slow down, reconnect with friends, and paint beautiful places where the masters before us have painted,” as the event website says. “We make it effortless. You roll out of your dorm bed for breakfast. Pack your sack lunch for your day of painting and show up for dinner. Our days are filled with painting Acadia National Park and the surrounding area during peak fall color week (if weather cooperates), including colorful local harbors.

Registration covers all meals and lodging. Don’t drag those feet! Learn more or register by visiting Fall Color Week.
