The final BONUS afternoon Quick Paint during Walktober takes place at a cemetery on Halloween! Wear a costume and come out and capture this festive family event. Established in 1857, Union Cemetery was located between Westport and the town of Kansas and used by both towns, becoming a “union” between the two.

2. All traditional mediums are accepted (oils, watercolor, pastel, acrylic, ink, graphite).

3. Artists may paint anywhere in Union Cemetery. Subject matter can be anything within sight as long as the artist is within the boundaries.

4. Artists will immediately submit work for judging and a chance to win the $250 purchase award. Return the completed work upon conclusion of the Quick Paint at 2:30 p.m.

5. Purchase award will be chosen and prize awarded at Noon. Winning artwork becomes the property of the Quick Paint sponsor.
