Paint-out at the Farm at South Mountain- Saturday, April 24th -anytime all day
    Here is your last chance to paint in the Valley before the heat sets in! You are all invited to come down and paint at the Farm at South Mountain on 32nd St. between Southern & Baseline. There are rows of flowers in bloom, colorful vegetables, a farmers market set up, two outdoor restaurants for breakfast and lunch and pecan trees budding out for spring. Parking in on the east side of 32nd St. so pack your gear to carry it into the property.  You can also park on 30th St. on the west side of the property and walk in on that side. Check out the Cottage for hand made goods for sale and also as a subject to paint. Please do not set up in the rows of the garden, in any pathways that may block visitors or near the wedding tents-(yes that has happened).  If you come early stop at the Morning Glory outdoor cafe on the west end of the property, then pick up a picnic lunch at the Farm Kitchen by the picnic tables on the east end near 32nd st.  Barbara Schoepf and Toni Perrin will be there to answer questions about painting and can offer advice and help. This is a good opportunity for both the novice and pro plein air painters.
