\This year, a free children’s paint out will be hosted near the Railroad Park Gazebo, where children can practice with watercolors on site, in emulation of the judged Plein Air Paint Out.

Snoqualmie Valley Arts member Lanice Gillard is looking forward to helping kids explore their artistic sides, and is hoping for around 200 children throughout the day.

“I think some of them think they don’t have talent, and all of them do,” she said.

The event is free, and no registration is required.
