Paint It! Ellicott City 2015
Paint It! Ellicott City 2015, our sixth annual plein air paint-out, was a big success. We’d like to thank all the Ellicott City businesses and the many volunteers that supported the artists during the event, the community members who came out to watch, and especially all the artists who participated. We hope to see you again next year!
