Samish Island PaintOut

Registration for May 1 – 5, 2024 PaintOut will begin on March 15, 2024.

Three wonderful times each year, about 40 artists arrive at beautiful, 90-acre Samish Island Campground (about an hour north of Seattle, WA) to breathe the clean air and concentrate on painting. We call it “paint camp.” The view is breathtaking, the ambiance welcoming, the food delicious. Artists make new friends and reunite with old friends they not seen in awhile. At PaintOut, you leave your obligations behind.

PaintOut is open to anyone, both members and non-members. Bring a friend!

Accomodations include your choice of either a retro, private “standard” (electrified and heated) cabin with nearby bathroom/shower, a full RV hookup, or an “E” cabin with shared bathroom (double occupancy receives priority). Three excellent meals are served daily and are included in camp cost (cost varies by length of stay and accommodation type).

Most artists are focused and productive while being sociable and sharing. Subject matter is abundant whether you are a plein air or studio painter. You may create without interruption, as the lodge has no closing hour. Puget Sound is just outside the door, oyster beds are nearby, trails are all around the area, and the tides are constantly changing! If you are new to an art process, many will share and teach. PaintOut is the perfect place to learn, explore, and solve your art challenges without needing to stop and cook!

Sharing is part of the experience, so a large bulletin board becomes a growing exhibit of finished art, where artists can enjoy pinning up their work for others to see.
