“This is a great chance for local artists and others to paint together in a beautiful location. It is not a workshop, but whenever artists get together we automatically share ideas, tips, advice and compliments. I love that it comes with lunch in the Lodge, which is also a back-up painting location in case of weather issues.” Jean Kiegerl
