In 2024, the Manito Art League celebrates 59 years of promoting Great Art in our Great Northwoods. Our league is proud to present an Annual Art Show, a scholarship program, workshops and the Northwoods Outdoor Artists plein air group that paints and draws weekly at a variety of outdoor locations in our beautiful Northwoods.

Our group is made up of area and seasonal artists and we welcome anyone at any level to join us to make art and make friends!

Northwoods outdoor artists 'brush' around the Northwoods for 15 years

Painting is one of the most traditional ways to display creativity; and local artists from around the Northwoods capture the beauty of the landscapes from our areas.

The Northwoods outdoor artists are inspired entirely by what the area has to offer. 

“It’s glorious out here and peaceful and calm,” said Florie Enders a Northwoods Outdoor artist.
