Join Us to Paint the Preserve at Preston Nature Preserve

October 7 @ 9:00 am - 11:30 am

Preston Nature Preserve

Join fellow artists and Avalonia’s Office Manager, Mary Anne Sherman, who will lead you on a short hike through the Preston Nature Preserve to paint en plein air. It’s an idyllic place for an outdoor painting event. Artists of all skill levels and mediums are invited. Learn from and share with other artists, enjoy being in nature, and create your next masterpiece. We will meet at the parking area, hike a short distance, and paint to our heart’s content.

This is the second of two Paint the Preserve events. The first event is planned for Knox Preserve in Stonington on Saturday, September 9, 2023.
Suggestions:  Bring your own easel and painting equipment, water, bug spray, and sunscreen.

Parking:  Ample off-street lot, grass surface, room for about a dozen cars, no parking space accessible to people with disabilities. The lot is located on 38 Krug Road at the PNP trailhead. Additional parking is available along Krug Road.

Trails:  Mostly mowed grass surface pathways through open meadows, some slopes, some areas with roots and rocks in the pathway, as well as occasional protruding branches.

In case of inclement weather, participants will be notified of a cancellation via email no later than 2 hours before the event.
