Join us on our monthly PaintOuts. ​Valle del Sur's PaintOuts are open to all adults wanting to join at scheduled locations for a day of creating art in nature.

What is a PaintOut?

​A PaintOut is also known as painting en Plein Air, or "in the open air".

PaintOuts usually begin at 9 am and we normally paint until noon. We paint on a Thursday, usually once a month and special PaintOuts will be announced from time to time.​
