How Hiking Is Good for Body and Mind: https://www.webmd.com/fitness-exercise/features/hiking-body-mind


In general, we host events mostly in the late morning, afternoon and evenings, so you can get your beauty sleep and get your work done early, giving you options to fit your personal schedule.

We’ll find most hiking and walking places under big tall trees or shaded, open space, amazing reviews in country parks without getting sunburns or too much sun exposure, at beaches with fresh ocean air or fresh ocean breeze, and beautiful sunsets.


If you would like to reunite with old friends or meet new people, while exercising outdoors, come join us. We look forward to meeting you, walking, hiking with you and making good memories together!

South Bay Art

San Jose, CA

South Bay Art

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.

Ken
