Plein Air Group

Open air painting group.


Plein Air Group

September 16th we will paint on the grounds of the Herbert Hoover Presidential Museum and Library in West Branch, IA from 9 am to noon. Then, at noon we are invited to the Hoover Fine Arts Gallery in the Hoover House at 102 W. Main St. in West Branch to share our artwork.

You will need something to paint or draw with and something to do it on. Drawing materials can include but are not limited to graphite, charcoal, pastels, watercolors, water-based oils, solvent based oils or acrylics. The choice is yours. An easel is very handy along with a stool or lawn chair. Dress for the weather.  Maybe a hat and sunscreen. Don’t forget a sweatshirt or jacket just in case. Bring your own snacks and beverages. If the weather is bad we will cancel or you may want to try painting outdoors under adverse conditions. It is up to you.

Free Admission
