Plein Air Events...

Our "Brushes with Nature" program was created to foster fellowship and the opportunity to meet other NEWS members and friends while painting outdoors at some of New England's most beautiful locations.

These paint-outs usually start in the month of May, and go through October. Any NEWS member can host an event and invite others to join. We start planning in February, and information about upcoming events will start to be posted then.

Plein Air events are just for fun. There will not be any instruction to sharpen your skills. However, as a member, you will have the added opportunity to exhibit artwork done over the spring, summer, and fall at one of the events and submit your artwork in the annual Brushes with Nature exhibition at our Gallery in Plymouth MA in January and February (starting in 2024).

All watercolors created at a Plein Air event will be acceptable for entry into our Brushes with Nature exhibition. This exhibition is open exclusively to members that participate in the Brushes with Nature program. All submitted artwork must have been completed during one of the scheduled Plein Air events -- or started in the field and completed in the studio.


We will continue to add paint-outs on the events page as they are planned.
