How to Participate:
• Register on eventbrite (only 50 places available).
• There will be no instruction during the event (an optional class is offered the weekend before the paint-out).
• Locations will be selected and emailed to participants in May.
• Participation all four days is not required but if you feel you’ll miss more than two days, please let another artist who will attend more days sign up.
• Each day we’ll meet at the designated location at 9:00am. After a meet-and-greet, we’ll head out to paint. At 3:00pm we’ll return to the original meeting place to share the day’s work. We’ll wrap up about 3:30pm.
• On Sunday, after our daily painting, we’ll gather at The Healdsburg Art Atelier to set up for the evening’s “Wet Paint” show.
Wet Paint Show:
• Reception 5pm-7pm, Sunday, June 23.
• Since this is an impromptu, wet paint show, no work will be framed.
• Each artist can select 1-2 of their new paintings to exhibit. Watercolor paintings will be carefully taped to the wall for viewing. Other work may sit flat on tables, etc. The public will be invited to the exhibit.
• Artists will price their own work. All sales are final and will be handled through HAA with a 20% commission to the gallery.
