Peace River Painters

Painting from life is essential to every artist.  It sharpens the memory, dramatically improves draftsmanship, and gradually enhances painting proficiency.   

We will resume painting October 2.  
      Have a great summer everyone.

New for the 2017-18 season will be a scheduled nocturne painting session on Saturday evening.  The first one will be Saturday, Oct 14 at 6 PM.
