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.

Informal Critique
Limit of one to two works in progress paintings please. (No wet paintings please).
Suggested RSVP to Doris Bertch

Everyone comes away with great suggestions is a very constructive, enriching and supportive environment.
Due to the nature of informal critiques, these are open to NCSFA members only.
