Welcome to HOOT’s  38th  Convention “Painting Fun In The Sun”  August 7-11, 2018  (Tuesday thru Saturday).

Our convention will be held at the Arena Hyatt Regency Hotel in Columbus, Ohio.

We offer painting classes in a variety of skill levels and mediums. Registration is required for the painting classes.

You do not need to be a member of HOOT or any other painting organization to attend our convention.

You may register for classes, visit our Art Show, view Painting Demonstrations, go to the Exhibit Sales Floor, or shop for that “special” item in our Gift Shop – all are open to the public.

The 2018 HOOT Convention catalog will be posted around the first of May and will be on the “Catalog” page. Registration will begin May 10, 2018.

We have information about the 2018 HOOT Educators on the “Educators” page NOW!!  We know you want to learn about who is teaching at HOOT this year, so come back for updates.
