Back to the Beach
We had a the wonderful opportunity to take part in this end of summer concert series located at the Stonebridge Town Center. Some of our local artists did a fantastic job of setting up the booths in the gazebo by the pond, a beautiful spot to showcase their beautiful work.
Plein Air at the Beach
In June of 2021, we all gathered at Beach 2 to kick off the summer season with an afternoon painting en plein air. These outdoor sessions continued every other week for the duration of the summer as a way for us to feel connected, supported, and creative!
In early fall of 2020, a few of us all met up at Beach 2 area to sketch and paint en plein air. It was a fabulous way for us to safely see one another and be creative in our own ‘backyard’ on a beautiful day.
