Plein Air Days

Paint Outdoors in the Bay Area with CWA!

All CWA members are welcome to attend the CWA plein air painting days. Our plein air dates are the Saturdays following the General Meetings, except Blake Gardens is on a Friday. We meet at 10:00 am at the chosen date and locale, paint, then share our work at 1:00 pm. CWA plein air days are not competitions. We meet to share our love of painting outdoors.

Photos of the plein air locale, artists, and the artwork will be included in CWA’s monthly newsletter and Facebook page.

To promote CWA, you can bring a friend to paint with you and encourage him/her to join CWA; or keep some CWA membership brochures in your painting bag to share with curious onlookers. You can even encourage interested people to join us at 1:00 to see our finished paintings.

If you have any questions, please email the plein air coordinators at See photos from past plein air outings on CWA’s Facebook page.  

CWA plein air dates are the Saturdays following the monthly General Meetings.
