For those new to the PAPC, here's a little something about what you can expect from joining our illustrious group.

May 31, Riverside, Illinois

Last summer we went to the beautiful town of Riverside--a lovely spot. Return there this Saturday or check it out for the first time--and escape the madding crowd in the City.

WHERE: Meet in front of the library.

Here are the directions to the library.

WHEN: 8:30 a.m. Critique at noon.

WTTW Chicago Tonight: Reruns on Comcast

For those of you who missed the original airing of the Chicago Tonight segment about the PAPC, you can still see it if you have Comcast cable. Go to the on-demand programming, and you will find a section devoted to WTTW in the local programming area. Click on the Chicago Tonight program from May 27, and there you are--about half-way in to the show.

Congratulations to all, and a huge shout out of thanks to Beck Anstee for pulling this off.

May 24, Halsted and Armitage

A great urban setting for this Saturday's paint out: Halsted and Armitage, somewhere we've been before, but always a good spot: shops, street corners, the el tracks. I believe there is a farmer's market down the street on Saturday mornings as well.

I can't get the links to work this morning, but mapquest dot com will help with directions.

Time: 8:30 a.m. Critique at noon.

This Saturday will be a treat: painting at the Methodist Camp Ground in Des Plaines. This is a charming location; I've seen paintings that were done here, and there is lots of material. It will also be the location for one of our outings/sales events in August, so check it out now and start your compositions.

Time: 8:30 a.m. Group critique at noon.

Directions here.
