Chapman State Park Paint Out

On Saturday, June 9, 2012, 9-5p.m., artists are welcome at Chapman State Park, a 2254 acre site and its 1840 antebellum manor house, Mount Aventine. The park includes lush, rich nature, beauty, serenity and historical lands on both sides of route 210 (Indian Head Highway) on the shores of the Potomac River in western Charles County. It encompasses miles of trails winding through woods, along marsh lands as well as over two miles of beach on the Potomac shoreline. It offers an unusual array of coastal plain habitats including unbroken forests highlighted by numerous seasonal wildflowers. Home to a diverse array of trees and plants, it harbors some rare, threatened and endangered species and state champion trees.

Artwork produced on that day may be for sale later in the summer at the Mount Aventine Grand Re-opening event.
