Bringing artist together and painting outdoors - mainly the North Bay Area (Marin, Sonoma, Napa and Santa Rosa, and Solano County). We meet on the last Sunday of every month (unless noted). No critiques, just getting out there and painting. All skill level are welcome!!! So bring our favorite medium (pastels, oils, watercolors, etc. and we'll see you at the next paintout! Thanks.
Note: Oct - Jan will be tentative due to weather conditions. A lot of our locations do not offer much coverage, but I will keep you posted during those months.
Welcome! Who's ready to paint outdoors?
