The Plein Air Gatherings are an opportunity for artists to get together and paint or draw outdoors “en plein air” in Hancock County parks. All adult artists who use any medium conducive to working outdoors are welcome. If you are new to plein air painting or would like to try it but are hesitant to go out on your own, these gatherings are a perfect opportunity to meet and work with other plein air artists.

You should plan to bring whatever supplies and equipment you need and dress for ground and weather conditions. There is no fee or registration. It is not necessary to attend every session – come when you can. In case of rain, the session is cancelled.  Gatherings will be held weekly on Thursdays on the following dates; please note times for each.
