Come out and paint nature with fellow art enthusiasts every Wednesday in the gorgeous scenery throughout the East Bay where there is abundance of natural beauty. This new informal outdoor painting group, The Fremont Art Association Plein-Aire/East Bay Outdoor Painters (FAAPA/EBOP), is led by award-winning artist Robyn Leimer and hosted by The Fremont Art Association. All mediums and levels are welcome; there is no fee and nothing you need to do except show up and paint. Join us on Wednesday mornings from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. or longer; bring your lunch if you want to share in a friendly group critique at the end. The location will change every two weeks. Meet at the site.
FAAPA/EBOP locations through May 16, 2012:
Feb. 29 and March 7 - Coyote Hills
March 14 and 21 - Shinn House and Arboretum
March 28 and April 4 - Alameda Creek (Niles staging area)
April 11 and 18 - Historic Town of Niles-Fremont
April 25 and May 2 - Mission San Jose area
May 9 and 16 - Mission Peak Reserve
Most of the locations are local although once the group is more established, there is a plan to venture out to areas in Livermore, Half Moon Bay, Carmel, Stockton harbor and more, with some overnight trips as well.
