Charlotte Plein Air Painters
Onslow Outdoor Painting Society (OOPS!)
PLEIN AIR CAROLINA
Plein Air Carolina is a organization of amateur and professional
painters. Plein Air is literally painting in the open air. Membership is open to all interested
painters.
Artists have the opportunity to
paint in a variety of locations, the security of
working together and enjoy the companionship of
fellow painters. It is an opportunity for all  members to grow
professionally.
There are no officers, regular meetings or
dues.  
Friday is the designated painting day but on occasions, another day may be designated. Artists need not be “Plein
Air” artists, or have plein air experience to be members. Plein Air Carolina is sponsored by the Waterworks Visual
Arts Center.

NC ZOO PAINT OUT
June 29, 2016


L
et me remind everyone that you want to use  
the main entrance which is The North
American.  I will be out front from 8:30-9
otherwise just come when you can and have
fun!
Diane Villiers,who is the Art Director at the
Zoo, has these sites to especially recommend:
Forest Aviary is a tropical bird site with
orchids blooming, it is small so  get there
early. Bird feeding at 9:30 for bird "pic"
opportunity.
Desert Conservatory will be air temps but
they keep the humidity low.
Dragon Fly Point is a picnic area, she thinks
the water lilies are in bloom on the lake.
Grasslands area has vistas.
Marsh/Cypress Swamp area, especially for
the trees.
If you want close ups of animals there is a
Giraffe feeding every day for $2.
Lastly, there is an
Art in
the Park guide for the sculpture
throughout.
They are very happy and excited to have us
out and Wednesday is suppose to be a
quiet(er) day but use the normal courtesies.  
Diane says they would be thrilled to have us
come again in a different season too.
