Does painting outdoors seem intimidating?  Here is your chance to "dip your toe in the water." Tuesday, June 16, 7:00pm at the Lafayette Art Museum, Jerie Artz will share tips on painting "plein air" and you will have the chance to go outside and paint.  Bring supplies for the medium you enjoy working with, a camp chair, or TV tray, or easel, or just come and find a rock to sit on,  but the demo will be watercolor.  Try it - I think you will like it!
