November Paint-In/Out, Wednesday, November 29th, 10 -3
What is a Paint-In/Out?
We gather between 10 am and 3 pm at a beautiful spot on the Shore – often a private home – and enjoy the surroundings. Many of us paint what we see. Others bring projects to work on – and not just paintings. Some of us take the opportunity to photograph what we see. We either bring a lunch, or a dish to share (homemade or store-bought). If you ask for input on your work, you’ll usually get good advice. If you don’t want input, that’s OK, too. You are sure to meet new friends and have a break from the usual.
