Paint Out: Morven


Art al Fresco!
Join us for the Arts Council’s continuing Paint Out Princeton program at Morven, whose beautiful grounds become your studio for a day of painting en plein air. Discover the endless possibilities in capturing the spirit and essence of this historic site. The mansion, former residence of New Jersey’s Governors and 18th Century home of Richard Stockton, a signer of the Declaration of Independence, has an impressive façade and wonderful architectural details. The Courtyard offers views of the mansion, surrounding outer buildings, and the glorious Colonial Revival Garden shaded by soaring spruce trees. The Grand Front Lawn is dotted with majestic trees and beds of heirloom plants. Come explore the changing effects of natural light as it bathes the grounds throughout the day. The public enjoying Morven in May will be invited to visit and observe artists at work!
Pre-registration is requested. Registration is exclusively through the Arts Council of Princeton.
