Rain or Shine Paint Group

Cost: Donation to benefit Serendipity Studios

Bring your paints, palettes, paper, pencils and projects! Whatever creative idea you've been incubating, come make it happen this year.

The idea is to meet one Saturday a month to work on projects and share our progress. In the summer, we can plein air. In the winter, we have the warm, cozy atmosphere at Serendipity Studios (by the Ammonoosuc River). We'll share tea and snacks, creative support, and conversation. This group will be hosted by local illustrator/artist and co-owner of Serendipity Studios, Patti King Slavtcheff.

All abilities are welcome. PLEASE RSVP (via IM, text or email) as space is limited. This is a free event created in an effort to build a northern art collaborative. Rain or shine!
