Journaling in Plein Air
By Joan Polishook
A crowd of some 35 artists gathered at Grey Towers in Milford, PA Thursday, June 2nd to "kick-off" the 2011 Come paint With Me plein air painting program. Joan Polishook delivered a brief lecture on “THE IMPORTANCE OF JOURNALING FOR THE PLEIN AIR ARTIST.” The group was welcomed by members of the US Forest Service and the Grey Towers Heritage Assn. Participating artists were each given a spiral bound journal, courtesy of the Heritage Assn. The artists spent the rest of the day painting on the grounds of Grey Towers. From now until October, Thursdays will be devoted to plein air painting at many other sites throughout the tri-state area. This is a FREE program anyone can join. For brochure go to:
