Plein Air Painting
We are looking for individuals to volunteer to host informal plein air events. You would coordinate a day to gather and paint at a nearby location where you live. Examples could be the shore, scenic parks or farms, northern NJ, the Delaware River, etc. If interested, contact Clara Sue Beym via email at csbeym@ gmail.com with subject PLEIN AIR and include your ideas.
Members Teach Members
We are looking for members who are interested in teaching other artists, can demo or host a short workshop via Zoom. If interested, please contact Tess Fields via email at firstname.lastname@example.org with subject MEMBERS TEACH MEMBERS and include your ideas.
In September of 2020 members were invited to paint 5x7 watercolors in secondary colors of green, purple and orange. We had excellent turnout with 43 artists painting 90 creatures. We sold prints and originals from that endeavor. The community was invited to seek and find our “Beautiful Creatures” in a Scavenger Hunt. Laminated art was placed throughout the town of Princeton, at D&R Greenway’s Johnson Education Center campus, and Greenway Meadows on Rosedale Rd.
