The schedule for the 2013 season is now available for download.
The 2013 season offers artists opportunity to return weekly to favorite outdoor sites, chosen cameos from the past 16 years of the popular and FREE plein air painting program for adult and serious young artists, COME PAINT WITH ME ©.
Step into the future to artistically interpret and record impressions of the natural surround at familiar places that have nourished our creative appetites in the past, and continue to spark further growth and development of artistic skills.
Artists arrive eagerly to paint each week in a natural setting. All grapple with tote bags bulging with materials, easels and not to forget lunch boxes, while searching out inspiring scenic views from which to draw or paint. The casual weekly treks bring together old friends while welcoming new artists; all this while sharing a common interest in the arts through plein air painting.
On Thursday, June 6, we officially kick-off the season with a painting opportunity at the Main Gateway to Grey Towers in Milford, PA, a newly restored area offering water, field and stone wall views.
Grey Towers in Milford is but one of many locations selected for its natural aesthetic characteristics, accessibility and convenience for all. Other frequented sites include the Lords Valley Country Club in Hemlock Farms, the Dorflinger-Suydam Sanctuary in White Mills, Shawnee on Delaware, and the town of Lackawaxen, PA. Since new venues are always included, we will also visit the G.AI.T. Therapeutic Riding Center in Milford, PA. for equine enthusiasts, and The Ledges Hotel in Hawley for the gorge and waterfall views.
Painting the still life in nature at the Dorflinger Glass Museum is again on the agenda along with an optional tour of the museum.
All artists may submit their art in the invitational shows and exhibits that will take place in September, October and December. Prospectus for each of the above will be sent via e-mail at a later date and will appear on the website.
An overwhelming response to COME PAINT WITH ME © over the years attests to its value in contributing enormously to the artists in ways that have energized the confidence of those just starting out, and adding support to the creative integrity of the more accomplished. There is no formal instruction given, but part of each session is devoted to sharing and gentle critique, a chance to learn from one another, and perhaps gain new perspectives, guidance and inspiration.
Please join me this year. I look forward once again to sharing creative moments with you all.
