June 7th-14th, 2020- As part of our soft start due to the pandemic, our second week of season is a challenge to members to “Paint Where You Want”. If you have a favorite spot or want to try a new spot take time this week to paint where you want!
The 2020 season begins! In light of the pandemic issues, rather then gathering as a group this week, we challenge you to paint your own backyard! A good way to warm up for the season with no pressure! Do as many as you wish. We will work on a way to share these at a later time. Remember we have a show planned for July 21st!!
If you haven’t already done so, take a look at the PPAA members virtual online show at Bismarck Art and Galleries Association! Congratulations to those who entered and thanks BAGA for initiating this endeavor. The works are very good and definitely represent the broad range of artistic style within the group!
