Weekly schedule, setting up one

  • Needs a date

  • Needs a location

  • Nice weather is golden for this Meet UP Group. Let's set up a weekly time slot, say Saturday or Sunday mornings (perhaps alternating) at 10, and pick a series of locations and just do it. Not every date will fit into everone's schedule. We could start off with several that are easily accessible with some greenery. Boston and the near suburbs are loaded with great spots. A weekday time slot might work for some folks. I'll assist Michael with this effort, if there is interest.

    Weekends are best for me until summer... I'm an Art teacher, so I'll have a lot more time off in the summer.

      Sorry . In July and August.mlets touch base later this spring.mwould be great to meet for painting.

      April 24

  • Nancy a.

    Until the end of May I am pretty busy during the week but have lots of freew time in June. And of course weekends are definitely a possibility. I would love locations nearer metro west. I live in Newton and it's hard for me to travel and hour plus to a painting site.

    April 24

  • Nancy a.

    I wish we could paint in metro west, nearer to Boston. It's just too far for me to travel out to the middle/western part of the state. Are other people interested in sites nearer to Boston?

    1 · June 30

    • Debra L.

      Perhaps we could consider a Merrimack Valley/North Shore/MetroWest group?

  • Loretta M.

    Oh I noticed that a former member noted various locations in Worcester including Tower Hill Botanical gardens in Boylston, MA a great location. Check out Fun Free Friday's in MA Many museums and venues are free during I believe July and August We may have to wait for them to update their calendar

    1 · March 7, 2016

  • Loretta M.

    Hello I am interested in the list of sites and plein air calendar for the upcoming warmer weather. I love to plein air paint and I am familiar with all mediums. I do not mind traveling, I am retired so I am also available during the week. Can't wait to get out there again!!!

    March 7, 2016

  • Debra L.

    I'm interested in getting out to paint more. Are there any dates set up for this group? I'm new to Meetup and not sure if this group is different from or the same as those listed under 'upcoming Meetups'?

    Does anyone here paint outdoors in the winter, because I do and would like to see if others would be interested in a local outdoor winter painting? The snow is just great this time of year and the lighting can be a delight.

    Does anyone have a little extra room, where I can paint in oil, stain glass work over the winter months? Please email to [masked]; I live in Arlington center and would prefer something close by.

    so sorry I missed all of those great plans to paint en plein air -- now that it's December 1st (too late??) -- just curious as to where everyone finally decided to paint? -- and yes the Blue Hills are absolutely gorgeous to paint -- went out alone at Houghton's Pond in October for the fall foliage and loved every minute of it -- I hope people are out there that are still painting outside (weather permitting) - there's nothing like it

    December 1, 2012

    • elena

      I have a semi-plein air suggestion--The Wellesley greenhouses provide a gorgeous (and warm) place to paint. Anyone interested?

      2 · December 1, 2012

    • Keiko

      Painting inside a greenhouse? Sure, that sounds interesting.

    At art today.. taking lesson in Quincy.. A women said Blue Hills was a good place to paint. We can always set up camp by railroad tracks and wait for train to buzz by.

    August 15, 2012

    • Morgan D.

      where did you take art lessons? -- Quincy Art? -- and yes the Blue Hills is a gorgeous site for plein air painting -- happy painting

    Around Gloucester would be a wonderful location!

    September 11, 2012

    My personal opinion is that alternating Saturdays and Sundays would make the group accessible. My location suggestion is Gloucester. :)

    September 11, 2012

  • Morgan D.

    would love to meet with other artists to paint with -- I live just south of Boston so for me the South Shore is great but I'm willing to move around a bit -- probably weekends will end up working for me best -- let me know what's up - thanx

    August 25, 2012

  • Marc C.

    Hey Theresa, I actualy live about halfway between Boston and Providence. I know lots of good places to paint hereabouts. Ever been to Onset? Little Compton? Westport? I'm up for it if you are.

    YIKES that is a distance.. I was hoping for less then 40 miles.. I am willing to go near Boston.. or south toward Providence. Purgatory Chasm is too far for me.. sorry Marc..

    No car! Someone pick me up. I recommend Purgatory Chasm. Have you ever been there?

Zoo is always good. but cost money to enter. Fishing villages... Lets really try for this weekend.. that way when fall comes we will have a plan for fall colors.

    Weekends alternating Sat and Sun at 10 sounds like the best possible plan for me; should be able to make it once in a while.

    Really beautiful: Tatnuck Cascades in Worcester, Institute Park in Worcester, Elm Park in Worcester, Tower Hill Botanical Garden in Boylston and Old Stone Church in West Boylston. All but Tower Hill are free. Tower Hill, which is about $10, may be better in April or May, when more flowers are out. Some libraries have passes to Tower Hill.
