Val Rossman Demonstration

Our first general meeting of 2020 was held on January 11 at the Community Arts Center in Wallingford, PA. Our special guest was Val Rossman, a well-known pastel artist from the Philadelphia area. Val is an abstract painter who works with beautiful color harmonies. She spoke about her career and worked on two paintings simultaneously to demonstrate her skills.

Doug Tweddale Workshop

PPS members enjoyed a two-day workshop with nationally known artist, Doug Tweddale, on November 5-6. It was a beehive of activity at the Community Arts Center. Doug provided valuable painting tips and demonstrated his underpainting and pastel techniques for all of us who attended. Thank you to all of the PPS embers who worked to make this event a success!

September Plein Air Paintouts

Another paintout day went well at the John James Audubon Center at Mill Grove. The new Center building and updated landscaping provided a beautiful setting for our group of 10 artists to settle in and paint. The weather was perfect!

July PleinAir Paintouts

PPS has already hosted two paintout events this summer!  On July 17 a group of 6 gathered at Stoneleigh: A Natural Garden in Villanova where Pat Riley hosted  a pleasant morning of painting.  Stoneleigh was a country estate that has been donated to the Natural Lands Trust and is now open to the public.

PPS plain air artists hard at work at Stoneleigh

On July 24 Chris Clarkin  invited PPS painters to Exton Park near the Church Farm School and the Chester Valley Trail where they painted in the late afternoon to capture good evening light.

More paintouts are coming in August. Check our Events schedule for time and place and join us for more outdoor fun.
