The August Paint Out Announcement
Saturday August 13, 8:30-12 Noon
In keeping with our preparations for the December Show at the Music Academy of the West to benefit the University of California Natural Reserve System we will be painting in August at the Sedgwick Reserve. This is an old ranch on 6000 acres in the heart of the Santa Ynez Valley extending into the mountains. There are ranch buildings, rolling hills with grazing pastures, a pond and backed by the mountains.
It will be beautiful and is likely to be hot. Bring water, a hat, sunscreen and a snack or lunch. There are picnic tables under expansive oaks in the yard off the old sprawling ranch house.
It is a requirement to sign an online waiver specifically for the Sedgwick Reserve before entering the property. After signing the waiver and before the event you will receive by email a code, if necessary, for the gate to the ranch.

THE JOY OF SCAPE PAINT OUTS
By Jerry Martin, Paintouts Co-Chair
One of the great perks of being in SCAPE is having monthly collegial paint outs with like-minded nice people. If you haven't been to one you will be hooked once you do! It is always fun to paint in new and interesting locations of urban-scapes, landscapes and seascapes. We meet at a location of scenic beauty often chosen in conjunction with an upcoming show. Whether you are experienced with plein air painting, interested in taking photographs or perhaps drawing for use in the studio later, or just want to share being in natural settings with others, it is worth checking out.
We have enjoyed gathering at Naples with ocean bluffs, agricultural land and mountains; a private organic farm in the Santa Ynez Valley near Buellton; Lake Carneros; an historic adobe and farm on the Gaviota coast, Arroyo Hondo Preserve; and a hilltop avocado ranch in the foothills. We like to explore new venues, classic locations, and beautiful sights.
There are certain paint outs that require a reservation as they are being held on private land or lands managed by one of our beneficiaries such as EDC: Coal Oil Point, Sedgwick, Salt Marsh.
As a member if you have access or live in a spot that offers an enticing view and would accommodate around a dozen painters to set up, please contact Filiberto Lomeli or Jerry Martin. We would all much appreciate new ideas and new locations. Join Us!
