Paint Grand Traverse
Paint Grand Traverse is a new, week-long plein air (outdoor) painting festival and competition. During PGT, artists will paint at over a dozen beautiful locations throughout the Grand Traverse region, including Leelanau, Old Mission, Elk Rapids, and Traverse City. The week also features parties, activities for kids, live painting demonstrations, and more!
Paint Grand Traverse is presented by Crooked Tree Arts Center - Traverse City.
The Paint Grand Traverse WELCOME team will assist the artist orientation and check-in event on Sunday, August 12. We are hosting 44 artists, most of whom are not from Michigan! Help us give them a warm welcome and learn the lay of the land as they get ready to start painting the following day.
WELCOME team duties include: preparing artist info packets, lanyards, maps, etc. Checking-in artists, answering questions they might have about the area (restaurants, parking, geography, etc.); being familiar with and helping artists sign up for painting locations for the week. Welcome team volunteers can also help with artist check-out at the end of the week.
