Griswold Paint Out

Griswold Museum 96 Lyme St. Old Lyme CT

July 10th – Sign in @ 8:30 AM or After

The next CPAPS paint out is scheduled for July 10, and  will be held at the Griswold Museum in Old Lyme. This year the gardens at Griswold are the best I’ve ever seen, and of course there are beautiful views of the Lieutenant river and surrounding grounds. With its rich artistic history this venue puts today’s painters in the same place as the well-known impressionist painters who were Miss Griswold’s boarders so many years ago. One can imagine standing in the exact spot that painters have chosen each year since Griswold House opened its doors to the artists that recognized the beauty in this corner of the world.

NEW:  Begin your painting day with instruction and inspiration:
CPAPS is proud to present our first Artist Demonstration at this paint out by one of our Elected Artists. July 10th at the Griswold, Bernie McTigue (www.bernardmctigue.com) will do a 2 hour demonstration beginning at 8:30 AM.  He will begin by choosing his painting site and then discuss his plein air process, allowing time for you to work on your own painting right after. This is a voluntary program made possible by the generosity of each Elected Artist who chooses to participate, with the goal of providing our members with  the best painting experience possible.

You might want to take the tour of the Griswold house during your visit; it is delightful and well worth doing.
