High Cotton 2022
Paint Out October 5 – 8
Featured Master Artists Workshops October 9
We will once again be hosting our annual paint out, High Cotton! Our first two days we will paint spectacular red clay roads, moss covered oaks, and the beauty of the rural fields of Boston Georgia, a farming town listed on the National Register of Historic Places, 10 miles east of Thomasville. The next two days we will paint the beautiful historic streets of downtown Thomasville. Our featured artists will be your guides at nearby sites, but you are free to wander on your own as well. Take the opportunity to meet fellow artists and make new friends! The paint out will conclude with a wet paint sale where you can display and sell any of your artworks created during the paint out.
On October 9, the featured artists will present this year’s High Cotton School of Master Artists, where they will give demonstrations and teach you how they create fabulous paintings.
Registration for the High Cotton School of Master Artists and more information coming soon!
Presenting this year’s High Cotton featured artists:
Seven award winning painters from Sarasota to New Orleans; Four have been here before and three are newcomers you will love! Click on their photos to visit their websites to learn more about each artist.
