Do you love painting nature and drawing the figure? Do you doodle in the middle of the night? Do you carry a colour wheel and a view catcher in your back pocket? You're one of us! We speak two languages - art and gibberish. Come paint with us!

At Swinton's we offer workshops in everything art, but this Meetup group is mainly for Plein Air painters. Painting outside can make you a better artist. You don’t have to be a great outdoor painter to enjoy Plein Air painting. Just enjoy the process and you will get better at painting indoors. Beginner or advanced artists welcome.

Meet at Swinton's Art Supply, Instruction & Framing.

    "I am very sorry that I had to deprive 4000 artists of the right to paint me, around the world as a unclad model. Now maybe I can be respected as a artist. I am going to miss smiling at the artists."
