• The Shadows is the first National Trust for Historic Preservation site in the Gulf South. The home and garden are as breathtaking as the history preserved here.

Paint Out

Friday, March 16th from 9am to 1pm

FREE to participate

The Shadows-on-the-Teche invites artists of all ages and skill levels to the 4th annual Paint Out! Participants will be able to paint in the gardens of the Shadows and along downtown Main Street. Starting at 1pm, artists will bring their artwork to the Shadows where Erik Koeppel, New Hampshire based plein air artist and judge for this year’s juried competition, will present awards for the Paint Out and give a talk to all participants.

Participation in the Paint Out is free, but registration is required. All participants MUST report to the Shadows Visitor Center (320 E. Main Street) on March 16th BEFORE painting to have their blank canvas marked with the official Shadows Plein Air dated stamp. To register, complete the Paint Out Registration Form and bring to the Shadows Visitor Center on March 16th. Registration forms will be available the day of the Paint Out, but presenting a completed form will expedite the registration process.
