Group Paint Events


Plein Air outings are sponsored by NorthStar Watermedia Society, and are open to ALL Painters. Non members of NSWS are warmly welcomed. Lunch arrangements are up to the individuals. We gather between 9-10 AM, but you can join us at anytime during the morning. If you have questions call one of these contacts: Ann Sisel, 612-275-0774 or Leona Olson 612-859-7075. The committee members won’t be at every location but we will be there as much as possible. The complete summer schedule can be found on the NSWS website under Group Paint Events.
