November 8th – Paint Out – Hosted by Clara Lauer

Our last paint-out /in of the year will be at one of our favorite hostess’s home in Pungoteague.  Carla Lauer will be hosting us and her home works beautifully whether we paint inside or out.  Gorgeous water views on 3 sides, farmland, and an elevator for those who may not be able to handle stairs.  Don’t forget to bring a drop cloth if you will be painting indoors, and sunscreen, hat, and bug spray if outdoors.  Feel free to bring your own lunch if you have special dietary requirements;  otherwise bring a dish to share (store-bought items are fine if you don’t have time to cook) with a serving utensil.

For directions: Click Here. We will be painting from 10 am. to 3 pm., with a lunch break at 12:30 pm.
