Plein Air Happenings

Events for the 2021-22 season have been carefully considered given the COVID-19 issues. Our chair is looking at venues that would allow for social distancing while also offering the opportunity for artists to share the experience and their work. Masks will be required to participate.

CFWS hosts a plein air session every third Saturday of the month. Members and their guests are welcome to attend. We schedule the location and obtain any permissions necessary. Restroom facilities are a priority. We traditionally begin painting at 10 a.m. and end no later than 4 p.m. Check the event schedule for information about our next Plein Air session. You are responsible for any admission or parking fees if required, artist materials and refreshment.

CFWS members can volunteer to host a plein air event on the third Saturday of each Plein Air Month. Please consider hosting and email the Plein Air Coordinator.  She will check the calendar and confirm your request by email.
What’s a Plein Air PopUp? As part of our United Arts grant, CFWS volunteers provide information and basic instruction to the public at our Plein Air sessions. CFWS will have a tent onsite, samples of watercolor plein air paintings and information handouts. In addition, volunteers will be available, with painting materials, to demonstrate technique to the public.
