CPAPS Paint Outs
Paintouts are opportunities for plain air painters to gather at various scenic locations throughout Connecticut. Working together provides an opportunity to make connections with other painters and learn from each other.
Here you will find information about our paintout schedule and view images from past paintouts.

PAST PAINT OUTS

We thought it would be fun to paint sunflowers, and where better than at Buttonwood Farms, in Griswold CT. With the festival beginning July 22, we can look forward to fields of sunflowers for acre upon acre. In fact, it might be wise to bring extra yellow paint! Oh, and perhaps a few dollars for a bouquet to take home and, of course, a dish of ice cream.
The following is from the farm’s website, www.buttonwoodfarmicecream.com:
“THE SUNFLOWER EVENT SEASON WILL RUN FROM JULY 22-30. Each year we plant over 14 acres of sunflowers and harvest approximately 300,000 blooms for your viewing pleasure and to benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Connecticut, a non-profit organization dedicated to granting wishes to children with life-threatening medical conditions. Sunflowers are available while supplies last. Bouquets of 5 sunflowers will be given in exchange for a $10 donation to the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Connecticut.”
Their website is replete with great photos, and directions as well. They ask only that we remain aware of pedestrian and tractor traffic and make sure we don’t block any trails or access.

I recommend this site as a “do not miss” location. I have painted here many times and haven’t even begun to mine its potential paintings.
I will arrive at 8:00 AM and plan on doing a free demonstration in oil at 9:30 for anyone who would like to take in a 90-minute demonstration and still have time to paint afterwards. I hope to see you there!
