|Recurring Event (See all)

One event on Saturday, May 1, 2021 at 2:00 pm


Drop by to observe artists as they paint en plein air, French for “in the open air.”   Painting and drawing outdoors enables artists to capture changing details of weather and light as they occur.  The plein air artists are all either current or former artists with the Wheaton Arts Parade, whose exhibit, Path of Pyramids, is on the Museum grounds until May 23.

There are 2 sessions:  9 am – 12 pm and 2 pm – 5 pm

Guests are encouraged to bring snacks and enjoy the afternoon at one of the museum’s socially-distanced picnic tables, or just wander the grounds on a lovely spring afternoon.  Masks are required unless seated at your table.
