Welcome to a new year of painting Plein Air in the Central
Valley!! This year we will have at least two paint-outs a
month. One on Saturday, so those of you who work weekdays
can attend, and one on Thursday. Additional paint-outs or
trips may be planned in the year, so check your email for
We are looking for a venue to show our work. If you have any suggestions, please let us know.
Unless noted, feel free to come earlier or later than stated
times. Usually someone will be painting. If weather is
questionable, make your own decision. Some like to paint the
fog, rain, wind, etc.
Check your email or VSC Facebook page the day before
scheduled paint-outs. Plans do change sometimes.
Purchase maps of Stanislaus County and others. Keep
them handy. Links to maps will be posted on VSC
Facebook page for your convenience, but a county map
will help if you get lost.
• Annual dues are $10 and you will receive a paper copy of our paint-out schedule and a membership roster.
Carpooling: If you would like to carpool please
request a 2011 member roster.
We have a Facebook page. Join Facebook and get up-to-date
news about the VSC and other painting events. If you are
planning to go to a paint-out, you can respond in the events
section of the Facebook page. This will be a easy way to
communicate who is going, if you need a ride, or if plans
change. Photos and maps of painting locations, and past
paint-outs can be posted too.
