Monkton Paint-Along with Lisa Mitchell THIS EVENT IS FULL

Goodbye Day, plein air study by Lisa Mitchell

SAT. MAY 16 from 9 am to 4 pm
MONKTON, MD. 21111

Our gracious host for this Paint-Along event is Maryland Pastel Society member, Laura Wilke.  Laura, is also the coordinator for the Gunpowder Falls Plein Air Competition which takes place in Monkton, Maryland this coming June 4, 5 and 6.

Laura, has offered her lovely home in rural Monkton for your painting pleasure. There are
several subjects at this location to inspire you, including a grassy bank along the Gunpowder River, a vista with old farm buildings and even a courtyard garden. This is a peaceful spot on a quiet rural road, perfect for a day of painting and enjoying the company of artist friends.

Lisa Mitchell, will be providing a pastel plein air study demonstration in the morning to jump start the day.  Lisa, will be available to assist and encourage those just beginning to paint in the great outdoors with pastels while those more experienced artists can get into the zone and paint the day away! A wine and cheese critique gathering will close out the afternoon.

We are hoping for about 15 motivated artists to join us for the Paint-a-Long. First come first served so if you're interested, please send Lisa Mitchell an email to confirm your reservation, or call, 410-472-0001. Please respond by April 16 to save your spot! Upon making your reservation, more detailed directions and additional information will be made available to you. Any questions…please don't hesitate to ask!
