Plein Air Club
Hosted by Bruce Stam
Bruce will be hosting 2 Saturdays a month through March from 8 – 10am, come at any time that works for you and stay as long as you like.
Ever wanted to try painting out in the open? Come join us for some varied scenery and some lovely weather. Paint in the medium of your choosing.
Bruce has provided a suggested equipment list, be sure to ask a Jerry’s employee for it. The gatherings will be hosted by Bruce Stam on our behalf. Feel free to ask him for advice, but keep in mind, this is not a class. (Juicy coupons to be handed out!)
