Holiday Schedule

This fall we’ve had some lovely weather, but we’ve also had some miserable Mondays.  On Monday December 4th there is a threat of rain and wind.  I think it is time to take our Holiday break.   Whether you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, Ramadan, Kwanzaa or just take pleasure in your family and friends, we wish you Love, Joy and Peace this Blessed Season, and a Happy New Year.

Happy Holiday’s from the Windsor & Essex County Plein Air Artists.

We look forward to seeing you again in the new year.


Paint/Sketch out Nov 27th Lakeside Park, Kingsville Ontario

Start at 10 a.m.

Lakeside Park, Kingsville Ontario

At this time if year I tend to post our location at the last minuet because I’m watching the weather. It changes so quickly and I want us to get the best of the day. SO, Monday did look like a miserable day, but NOW it shows it will be sunny! YAY! I’m going to choose Kingsville Lakeside park.

Start time about 10 am – end time at your discretion.

Kingsville’s Lakeside Park is one of the jewels of the county. This is one paint out that will surely inspire.

If you go, please keep an eye on the weather.
