If you have never been to a paint out, you've been missing the convivial atmosphere of artists painting and sketching together.
The ncsfa paint outs are relaxed, with no pressure to produce. There is a vast skill range; some artists are professionals and others
are on page one of their first sketchbook, yet at paint out events we share a common experience. Everyone does their own thing;
bring your own supplies and a chair. This is a great way to meet other artists. We especially welcome newcomers.

UrbanSketchers extends a special invitation to NCSFA members. Just contribute $1, via the Urban Sketchers website, per meet-up to help defray MeetUp expenses. Urban Sketchers MeetUp Website and to RSVP
Artists' Tools
