Meeting: Thursday, April 21st at 10AM – Amy Peterson Demo

Multi-talented artist, teacher, and plein air painter AMY PETERSON will share with us a program on the joys, challenges, and benefits of painting outdoors. She calls it “No Fear Plein Air Painting”!  No matter what your preferred medium, Amy will help convince you to take your skills outside and learn from painting from life. Click here to see her bio.

Also, Show Chairs Janet Sanders and Nicola Cochran will have important show information and tips to pass along for our Art in the Village exhibition.
