What we're about

This group is for anyone who is interested in creating and sharing art. All mediums such as charcoal, water color, oil paint, etc. are welcome. All skill levels are welcome as well.

For our group's events, you'll find a mix of outdoor painting and indoor sketching and the locations vary from as far North as San Francisco to as far South as Monterey.

Recently we've been posting and guest posting more indoor meetups as a result of the popularity of the portrait parties and sketching, but you'll still find a couple outdoor painting events a month as well.

I should say that the events aren't classes or workshops in that I consider the group more of a social group who's members enjoy creating and sharing art with other artists. If you've got questions, are looking for a critique, or are stuck on something feel free to ask for help though. We really do have a nice mix of experienced artists.

Also, there are no fees for the group or events but sometimes there is a cost for things like parking or if we have events in coffee shops or restaurants we're usually expected to purchase something. I'll do my best to call out any fees in the event description as they come up.

If you have any questions or suggestions related to the meetup feel free to direct message me via Meetup.com's message service.

Looking forward to seeing you all and your art.
