COME PAINT WITH ME


Artists painting “still-life” in a nature setting at the Dorflinger - Suydam Sanctuary

COME PAINT WITH ME © ‘16
FREE ON-SITE OUTDOOR PAINTING AND SKETCHING
1997-2016

Now in its 19th year Come Paint With Me continues to offer the FREE outdoor painting program to adult and serious young artists. Scaled down this year the sessions are designed so as to allow artists to explore new horizons on their own.

During the months of July and August the schedule will include a return to favorite sites. June, and the latter part of August through mid September will give everyone the opportunity to paint at places of ones own choosing. A suggested list of public friendly sites is available below with this year’s schedule.

Having learned the drill over the years, most will remember to arrive at the sites equipped with tote bags bulging with materials, easels and not to forget the brown-bag lunch. A search begins for choosing the most inspiring scenic views from which to draw or paint. The casual weekly treks bring together old friends while welcoming new artists; all who share a common interest in the arts through plein air painting. On site, their individual interpretations emerge on paper and canvas, a record of their impressions of the natural surround. Many of the specially chosen sites are familiar places that have nourished the artists’ creative appetites in the past and continue to spark further growth and development of their artistic skills.

All artists will have the opportunity to have their works showcased this year in a special show open to plein air painters; PLEIN AIR - ALL SEASONS will take place at the Gallery at Chant Realtors Lords Valley during the months of November/December.

An overwhelming response to COME PAINT WITH ME © these past nineteen 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. Though there is no formal instruction given, time is set aside at each session for sharing and gentle critique, a chance to learn from one another, and perhaps gain new perspectives, guidance and inspiration.

Please join me and your fellow artists this year as we look forward once again to sharing creative moments with each other.
