South Rim Grand Canyon Paint Out


  • Grand Canyon National Park (map)

Spend a day or the week in Arizona's ultimate paint out location, the Grand Canyon. This paint out will catch the tail-end of the Grand Canyon Celebration of Arts Plein Air Event. We'll be there to watch the Quick Draw Competition and cheer on our APAP members who are participating at 0800 on Saturday the 15th. It should be a very educational experience and a lot of fun. 

Saturday afternoon, we'll meet up for our own paint out at (tentatively) Grandview Point. Other paint out locations along the rim will be announced to complete the week.

You are responsible for your own travel, lodging, food and safety. We will have a casual get-together for BYOE (bring your own everything) cookout once or twice during the week.

Your host, Kimberly Scott, will be camping at Ten-X Campground about four miles south of the park entrance. Ten-X has several reservable spots and a lot of walk-up campsites for both RV and tent camping. There is dispersed (free) camping nearer the canyon close to Grandview Point, as well. If you are interested in information regarding the dispersed camping, send me an email here. Other lodging options can be found here or by Googling "hotels near Grand Canyon South Rim."
