Cooler Weather On The Way -- Let's Paint!!

Hello Painters!
Here are some upcoming paint-outs APAP members will want to add to their calendars:
Dead Horse Ranch State Park - Cottonwood AZ
Saturday, Sept 29, 2012
24th Annual Verde Valley Days/APAP Paint-Out
Dead Horse Ranch State Park - Cottonwood AZ

APAP has been invited by park administrators to participate in the festivities with a paint-out! Plenty to paint here: thick marshes, reflective water, Mingus Mountains, old cottonwood trees, picnic grounds, fishing, and more. Park entry fee is waived for APAP members. This festival is well-attended, and is a great opportunity for APAP artists to meet & greet art lovers, and enjoy a lovely setting.
Our host is Jerry Pond; jerrypond(at)yahoo.com.

We have two venues for October 2012. Take your pick or enjoy both.

If going toward Sedona on 89A:
Continue on 89A to Jordan Rd.

APAP Members need to r.s.v.p. to Toni Perrin as soon as possible for each of these events. This is especially true for Superior as breakfasts and special admissions are involved.

There will be a publicity photo shoot for the artists going to Superior. It will be scheduled soon. We will be photographed painting, take a group photo, and end up on brochures and possibly signage. It's great publicity for us.

I hope you enjoy these opportunities.
