Painting Arizona State Parks 2010
Boyce Thompson Arboretum -Jan.
As most of you already know our State Parks are hurting for funding and have closed many of our beautiful parks. The Education dept. has been closed down and all our friends that worked there no longer have jobs. We can not continue the Paint-outs as they were- but what APAP would like to do is continue to have our members regularly visit and paint the landscapes of the remaining open locations. These will be casual come when you want, no competitions or stamping of canvases, just paint and meet up with friends. Please encourage your painting buddies to join you, no they do not have to join APAP to attend. If you belong to another painting organization encourage the group to come out on these days and join us. Here are the locations that we know of as of March 18, 2010. Some have dates to be determined. If you would like to be a host (just be friendly and greet artists, answer painting questions) please let us know.
