Other Art Opportunities (Non-UWS Calls for Entry, Exhibitions, Workshops, etc…)
Plein Air sessions are in full swing!
There are currently two sessions a week that you may attend. Artists meet on location on Saturday mornings at 8:00 am and on Wednesday evenings at 6:00 pm. Locations are announced on our FB page. Artists bring their own supplies. You can paint, draw, photograph, etc.! This is a great activity for artists to socialize while still practicing social distancing since we are outside! We can still stay connected and create together! You do not have to be a member of TCAG to participate in our Plein Air sessions. Everyone is welcome no matter what your skill level is.

This November, as a final culmination of the NWS 100 year anniversary celebrations, the National Watercolor Society and Hilbert Museum of California Art have teemed up to organize a must-enter juried exhibition (see a write up in The Art of Watercolour Magazine, issue #38).The paintings in this exhibition will be selected by NWS past presidents, Gerald Brommer and Ken Goldman, and will feature up to 80 artworks of NWS members displayed in close proximity to famous 20th century “California Scene Painters.” It was this group who originally formed the California Watercolor Society in 1920 with a goal of arranging high quality exhibitions of watercolors to help further the appreciation and understanding of work done in this medium. This same society, now called the National Watercolor Society, still maintains the same high standards of excellence begun 100 years ago.

UWS member, Jana Parkin, will be teaching a workshop at a castle in France in June 2020. Marouatte Castle, in the Dordogne region, sits on 240 acres of woodlands and looks like a fairy tale castle! Artists actually get to stay at a private room in the castle. Each has a private bath as well. We will also take day trips to the surrounding villages, which are amazingly picturesque and begging to be painted. Fairly nearby are the famed Lascaux caves, and Grotte de Villars with Neolithic paintings dating from 19,000 BC.
UWS Member Becky Hartvigsen is teaching painting classes at her home every Friday.
Morning: 10:00am – 12:00pm – Watercolor class ($20 per class)
Afternoon: 1:00pm – 3:00pm – Oil class ($20 per class)
