For a fun art experience, take an autumnal drive to visit the studios of Alan and Sue Arnson in Bittinger (Garrett County).  It is a 30-minute drive through the beautiful countryside of Western Maryland.  Sue’s studio is in a charming building which houses her workspace and a small gallery.  She is primarily a watercolor painter and will be demonstrating painting, monoprints, and collage.  Visiting the Arnsons is a wonderful opportunity to see how art is made.
