Join Plein Air Painting in and Around St. Augustine, Florida

PAPSA, Plein Air Painters of St Augustine has been painting out on locations for a couple of years. Participation with the group only suggests that you to set up and paint at the designated location. No membership, no dues, no commitment, just fit the date into your schedule and come and paint. The group has been meeting on the 2nd and 4th Thursday mornings, but now is expanding to 4 outings a month. You are invited to be a part of the fun.

Come and paint on the first and third Thursdays also. These additional outings are being hosted by JWS member Lenny Gemski.

The group will focus on providing opportunities to explore new painting locations, ideas, and growing as an expressive artist. Producing a gallery quality piece is a goal that few of us reach, so let's explore how we can enjoy painting just for the sake of working with the media and celebrating the outcome.

We will meet in a different location each time. A schedule will be distributed by email. Meeting time is 9am, but subject to change if necessary. Inclement weather is the only reason that we would not meet. We will encourage all interested artists to join us using any medium and with any level of experience. At about 11:30 we will meet in a comfortable spot to share our work for the day. This is a great way to meet other artists and get to know their work from their perspective. We will focus on talking about our own work for a couple of minutes. If discussion is desired by the artist, then that is possible too. No one needs to feel that they must share their work, it is possible to just listen to others.

Come paint with us!

Email Lenny Gemski if you would like more information and to be on the email list. lgemski@earthlink.net
