Just Around The Corner

Lots of things are coming up, this Saturday, March 7th starts the Scottsdale Artists League Paint Out at the Desert Botanical Gardens. There are on average 40 artists that participate in this event, from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm we will be throughout the gardens painting the things that we see. There will be paintings in oil, acrylic, watercolor and pastel. Most of the works will be small 5x7, 8x10, and a few larger pieces too. They are just the right size to take with you as a memento of your visit to AZ and the gardens.

This event takes place each Saturday in March, this year we will also have the 1st Saturday in April to paint. The follow weekend in April, 10-11-12th will be the big show and sale. All of the works that have been painted over those 5 weeks will be on display at the gardens. A percentage of the sales go to the Desert Botanical Garden and a percentage goes to the Scottsdale Artists Leagues Scholarship Program.

If you are in town come on by and see the gardens, talk with the artists and maybe pick up a little something. If you have an interest in doing this yourself check the web site for membership information.
