OPM Painting Trips
**COVID-19 Notice: For everyone's safety and reasonable assurance, participants should be at least 2 weeks past their final CDC approved vaccination by departure. As organizer of group activities, OPM will comply with any current local or State requirements and asks all participants to follow current CDC recommendations and guidelines.
OPM looks for opportunities to offer affordable painting trips for small groups to travel and paint together. In 2021, we have scheduled an October painting trip to Pagosa Springs, Colorado and an option to stay at Sugarloaf Cabins, a privately owned former resort in Schroeder, Minnesota on the North Shore of Lake Superior to paint before and during Plein Air Grand Marais.
Space is limited. To inquire about availability and details of each trip, or if you have suggestions for future painting trips, please email our Events Director, Allison Eklund.
You may pay here if you have already confirmed your spot for an upcoming trip and wish to pay with PayPal or credit card. **All payments for Sugarloaf trips go directly to OPM as a donation; no funds are received by Allison Eklund or her family.**
REFUND POLICY: If you must cancel your reservation before the cancellation deadline for a trip, OPM will refund your payment minus the PayPal transaction fee. If you must cancel after the cancellation deadline, your payment is nonrefundable and may be considered a tax deductible donation to OPM, a 501c3 charitable nonprofit.
