Artist Paint Outs

The artists will arrive and begin creating original paintings reflecting the beauty of Coastal Virginia-- beachscapes, cityscapes, gardens, homes, people, and more!  They will continue to paint outdoors from life (en plein air) throughout the day...and night (we are sure to have some nocturnal artists).
