Paint Outs

We’ve got a new series of paint-outs for you.  With these locations, it’s easy to maintain social distancing while still enjoying the camaraderie of other artists.  If you’re new to plein air, this is a good opportunity to give it a try.  You don’t need a fancy set of equipment to start; chances are you already have enough.  If you have questions about equipment or the painting process, just write back and we’ll have one of our plein air artists call you to help you out! Contact Tom Frey at for questions and to RSVP.  Carpool coordination has been temporarily suspended.

Remember that masks are required in open spaces where there is a risk of close contact, so please bring your mask just in case it’s needed.

3CPS August Paint Out

Tom Frey is out of commission for a while so I decided to schedule a paint out in his stead. I don’t think we have been to the Sweet Springs Nature Preserve in a long time and it is beautiful. Let’s meet at the entrance to the Nature Preserve.

Please RSVP to me directly so I know who to expect ( Remember it can be foggy and windy so come prepared.

Look forward to seeing you.
