CAA Plein Air
Nancy Roberts


Just a heads-up, Nancy probably won’t be scheduling any Contra Costa Plein Air paint-outs for the next month or so as she recovers from cataract surgery. In the meantime, She wanted to tell you about some great Plein air events coming up that you might enjoy. These are events where you go out and paint for a day or two, then bring your finished work for a show with sales and awards. They all require fees to participate, and some require pre-registration. She lists links here where you can find complete details.
