The event, which was first held in 2005, gives artists an opportunity to paint the scenery at "The Point," which is the only location with a view of three bends in the Ohio River.
The Paint Out is free to the public, but artists must bring their own supplies.
"You don't need to have any art education or skills or anything," said Jenny Miller, the event's organizer.
Miller said people who have already painted river scenery may paint other locations on the campus.
The Saturday and Sunday event is sponsored by the Rivers Institute of Hanover College. Registration is preferred, but not required, and begins at 7 a.m. Saturday and will run until 3 p.m. Artists are welcome to stay past the registration deadline.
Sunday's registration will be from 7 a.m. until noon at "The Point." There will also be a sale and exhibition event Sunday from 3 to 5 p.m.
