Plein Air in the Parks

The busWe have a heated bus! Now we can carpool and paint from inside the bus if there's rain, wind or snow. The back of the bus has storage space for all your easels, chairs and umbrellas.

Want to ride the bus? Make sure to call us the day before. We'll tell you what time to be here. No charge, but donations are always appreciated.
