Special Painting Challenges
 
Challenge One:
CRAIG SOLE DESIGNS (THE DETAILS)
Craig Sole has been an AMAZING patron of our event for years.  You've painted his business and his home. 
Now he would love a "detail."  His shop has so many tiny "details" that would make a great painting. 
Go there, introduce yourself, and find that perfect spot!  Craig and his whole staff are wonderful and they absolutely love having you!  Just be aware that it is a business
and please be respectful of that!

Challenge Two:
PAINT THE PRAIRIE (AT THE ARBORETUM)
We have a new area of the Arboretum to paint this year. 
It's the "prairie" just south of the Arboretum. 
You can access it off of Antioch (look for the signs). 
It is a wonderful vast landscape that has many great spots to set up and knock out a winning painting! 
Follow the trails...drive in as far as you like...
but just watch out for mud!!
