DAA PAINT OUT AND STUDIO VISIT MONTICELLO, WI AUGUST 17TH
Saturday, August 17th the Driftless Area Artists will be making art in the Monticello, WI Parks. At 9am you can meet others at the Coffe Mug on Main Street. Then claim a space on the banks of lovely Lake Montesian or in the flower gardens to the north side of the village just off of Hwy 69. Come do whatever suits your style. At noon we will break for lunch and gather at Linda Shannon's home. Bring your own sack lunch, please, and Linda will have beverages for us. Let's also bring a dessert to share. Linda will open her studio for us where she paints and teaches classes. If you can only come for Lunch, do that. Linda will be painting outside so the studio is only available over the noon hour. Studio is at 509 Coates Avenue. That is the street that enters town beside the Bank building.
Our DAA painting day began with coffee at The Morning Mug in Monticello, then we spread out around the town gardens and lake area to paint and draw. It was a beautiful day and relaxing time to create art and chat with our fellow members. At noon we retired to Linda Shannon's studio home to eat our lunch. Linda graciously showed her work area and explained her painting techniques. Thank you Linda!
(Photos will follow soon.)
