   Throughout the year, PAL members get together to draw and paint in
more-or-less formal groups.

~ Ongoing Groups ~

   Our Friday Painting Group has been meeting for many years. Currently they meet every Friday from 1-3pm. Contact Harry Sundberg at or George Milliken for information.

    Our Go Figure Drawing Group meets at Donna Trent's studio every Tuesday (except the second Tuesday) from 10am-2pm. Anyone is welcome to attend and draw or paint from live models (often in costume). There's a small fee ($10) which goes toward models' fees. Contact Mimi VanBallenberghe at for information.

     The Fox Island Painters meet Wednesdays at 10am at Nichols Community Center on Fox Island. All artists are welcome with payment of a $10 monthly fee. Contact Cece Anderson at (253) 549-4646 for information.

     During the summer, many of us meet to paint and draw en plein aire. It's a great way to stretch ourselves as artists - and it gets us outdoors to enjoy the season. Everyone is welcome to join in the fun!

     Our Plein Air Group meets Thursdays starting May 28 through September at locations throughout the greater Gig Harbor/South Kitsap area. We often join other organized plein air events and take out-of-the-area painting trips. In October, The Lodge at Mallard's Landing hosts an exhibition of paintings created by our plein air participants. Anne Knapp and Feather Hilger are leading this year's program. To get on the mailing list for all Plein Air information -- including the weekly painting locations -- visit the PAL blog at Peninsula Art League blogspot.

    Also during summer the Drawing You In group meets weekly at the Uptown Pavillion. PAL hires a model (often in costume) for each session and shoppers freqently stop by to ask questions and watch us paint. It's great fun! Contact Dee Gilliam or Stephie Cardinal for information.
