    The regular Saturday will be a nice addition for some that aren't available during the week to paint out... so hope this accommodates your schedules
    Expect to see Historic downtown districts, Venders, fresh produce, flowers, variety of  people, children, pets, Music Playing and Venice has a water fountain park and Gazebo too as a part of the view. Just a few blocks from the Gulf and/or Awesome Banyan trees too. Farmers Market where can meet, but many places to venture to from there too.  There are great painting subjects in any direction you turn.

    For more information on directions and times please contact facilitator K. Hitt and be sure to put in your memo VPA or Plein Air.
    The hope of the group is simply to enjoy the art of en plein air with fellow artist and record the beauty of our beautiful and historical areas en plein air.
    Venice Plein Air is on the south west coast located inside Sarasota County in the Venice area serving nearby communities and keys. We are under the umbrella of Plein Air Florida  PAF has many groups through out Florida and the calendar on their web site shares many of the paint outs on schedule. Another group that meets in our area is PASC/ Light Chasers.  Their usual paint out day is Thurs. Mornings.
    Between PASC and VPA there are ample opportunities to Plein Air Paint with a others in this area.

    VPA came about to serve our Venice area or South County.  Local artist supporting our local arts and historical scenic communities. Any visiting our area that wishes to plein air paint with a group is welcomed to join our MAPs.  Due to schedule, VPA MAPs are pre-set to two a month. Terry Mason facilitates the PASC/Light Chasers group.  I, K Hitt am the facilitator of VPA.    Terry and (Val before her) kept the en plein air active in the area. 
    Venice Plein Air... simply to celebrate the historical of our Venice area and to keep it recorded in the arts... and for the arts to continue to be represented by her artists in the area. VPA actually formed before PASC ...and the beauty of PASC is how they cover a larger area.  VPA one monday and one saturday, PASC thursdays... so if you have an interest to Plein Air Paint, be sure to check out the PAF calendar of events at for all the possibilities of Florida Plein Air in our area.

    VPA is smaller, as is our area smaller.  Again, all our welcome.
