know of any painting groups in the sacramento area?
Sacramento Plein Air Painters on Meetup is a good one.
Thank you…hoping for something a little less structured but will check it out .
Hi Susanne, Sacramento Plein Air Painters is actually not very structured at all. Various artists set up paint-outs and post them, then you just go if you feel like it and sketch or paint in your own way. I especially like the paint-outs in some of the Delta towns like Locke. Maybe we’ll meet at one of them! Cheers!
Let me know when you go !
OK, will do, Susanne!
Meet-Up lists 21 artist groups in the Sacramento area.
- The aforementioned Plein Air Painters has 563 members and lists 27 upcoming meetings.
- The Figure Drawing Group has 676 members and lists 111 scheduled
meetings. It includes Capital Artworks and The School of Light & Color, both of which offer multiple figure drawing/painting sessions/week.
When you join a group, you get email notices for upcoming sessions/meet-ups.
There are two large Sac area facebook artist groups.
- “Artists and friends in support of local artists” is public and
has 1067 members.
“Artists” is a closed group with 487 members, but all you have
to do to join is ask.
Probably just about every artist you know is in one or the other of these online groups. If you want a specific type of group, you could try starting one yourself and post the information about it in all of these places.
thank you, connie…
There’s a group in Fresno called the Alliance of California Artists – a ways from you, I know; but it might be good to get acquainted for entering shows. Nice people – I just attended a workshop they sponsored.
Thank you, Stevie…you are right, it is a bit far from here!
