Your new committee has heard that painting directly from nature might become a passion and an addiction. We’ve also heard that it might be a challenge, but what outweighs the challenge? The smells, the sights, the light, the act of being in your painting with Mother Nature brings an extra layer to your learning experience as a painter. It’s been said by many plein air artists that the exercise of painting outdoors will almost certainly help you improve your paintings indoors.

Painting in plein air events has the added benefits of camaraderie with other participating artists and the chance to paint in areas that are normally far away from your studio.

As your committee we invite you to come paint with us.
