Plein Air Season 2015

     This year Plein Air events start after Memorial Day and goes through Labor Day- on Thursday mornings. Anne and Feather will be "tag-teaming facilitators", to cover our plein air events this year to try and bring you a summer's worth of weekly variety in your creative challenges. We meet on site Thursday mornings (9-10am depending on location and current weather) to work in paint, pen, pencil, pastel, printmaking... whatever you choose for your medium, for 2-3 hours of creating together. It's a great way to get out of your studio and enjoy your summer with other artists.
