Description Flanders offers a visual feast of preserved pastoral scenes with barns, colonial architecture, ponds and a variety of fields with hiking trails, and the home and former studio of noted artist Natalie Van Vleck – many painting opportunities for artists and nature enthusiasts. The event is free and open to artists of all skill levels to come and sketch or paint for the day—no instruction is provided. Young painters welcome with a parent. Please, no pets.

Instructions Pomperaug Outdoor Painters and members of Oil Painters of America are invited to paint/sketch at Flanders Nature Center.

In addition, collectors and visitors are encouraged to attend the event to find out more about plein air painting and add to their collections. Artists may display/sell paintings at their easels. A portion of each sale (30% recommended) will be donated to Flanders to support ongoing programs. Parking is adjacent to the center's Sugar House on Churchill Road.

Artists should bring an easel and art supplies, water, bug spray, a sack lunch, and a couple of paintings to display at their easel if they wish. Group will break for lunch around noon. Facilities available. Alternate rain date: September 17th.
