Thursday and Weekend Paintsites

Please Note: In an effort to prevent the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) we are cancelling the Thursday Paintsites for the next four weeks. Cancelled Thursdays include March 18 (Santa Clara Central Park), March 26 (Kirk-Farrington House), April 2 and April 9. Please check the Paintsites blog, SCVWS website, and monthly newsletters regularly for scheduling updates for both Thursday and Weekend Paintsites.

In the spirit of keeping your painting skills limber during this temporary measure we invite you (Thursday and Weekend members) to paint or sketch on your own time during the week. We will continue to publish the weekly blog; all you have to do is pick one plein air painting from that week and then submit it by the Saturday of that same week. Here are some guidelines:

In observance of recent shelter in place requirements, we encourage painting subjects in home gardens, house plants, or scenes from personal photographs.

 General Information

The usual start time for the paint sites is flexible.  The organizers will be there from around 10:00 a.m. and will always carry cell phones (numbers in Member Directory for Jane Saltman) if you have trouble locating the group at the site.  Alison Turner leads our weekend paintsites. Often people stay until early afternoon, having taken a packed lunch to eat at the site.  After lunch we share our paintings and pictures are taken (if desired) for posting on the paintsite blog.

In case of rain or other unforeseen events:  Cancellation will be announced on http://www.scvws.org/ and on the home page by 8 AM on the day of the event.  Cancellation will also be announced by email to members, but the timing of SCVWS paintsite email cannot be guaranteed.
