What we're about
Let's get together to enjoy plein air (outdoors) painting/sketching and photography, and nature journaling in Lake Accotink Park (Springfield, Virginia) and along Accotink Creek (meandering throughout Northern Virginia). Plein air outings are scheduled throughout the year to allow members the chance to explore creatively the beauty each season offers. Nature Journaling outings are scheduled every 2nd and 4th Monday of each month so members can get up close and personal with Accotink's native plants and animals. The Springfield Art Guild, Friends of Lake Accotink Park and Friends of Accotink Creek formed this partnership to support the visual arts in our community while educating the public about these beautiful local parklands.
