>>>> You are invited

All WAAL artists are invited to come to the MAC on Saturday mornings from 9 to Noon to paint/sketch/enjoy a session in the Studio Room on the top floor with
artists of Central Ohio Plein Air
on most Saturdays during the winter we enjoy honing our skills by painting still life subjects or painting from photos or imagination.

Once a month, on the second Saturday we will have a live clothed model to paint from.    

Above is a link for you to enjoy a video of some of our artists as they enjoy painting.      
There is a small cost per artist of $5 on most Saturdays and $8 on the Saturday’s when we have a live model.   
We look forward to seeing you.
