As part of Indiana’s “Arts in the Parks” celebration, plein air painter Tamara Dubin Brown will visit Spring Mill State Park on Saturday, Sept. 10.


Brown will engage visitors with outdoor painting demonstrations inspired by the park’s caves and its Pioneer Village. She will share information about plein air painting, discuss landscapes, and draw attention to the park’s special scenery.

From 9 to 11:30 a.m., Brown will paint at Twin Caves. From noon to 2:30 p.m., she will be at Lakeview Activity Center for a hands-on watercolor activity with the public. From 3 to 5 p.m. she will paint at the Pioneer Village.

Through an Indiana Arts Commission (IAC) grant, Brown is painting on location at six state parks in 2016. This event is a part of the Arts in the Parks Series, a partnership between DNR and the IAC to celebrate Indiana’s bicentennial and the Indiana State Parks’ centennial.
