Paint out: Old Town with Guest Artist Errol Jacobson, meet 8:30 1400 N. Wells

July 6 @ 8:30 am - 12:00 pm CDT

Demo begins at  8:30am at intersection of Schiller and Wells.   Errol will show us his Plein Air techniques.

Old Town is a busy thriving neighborhood which offers us many choices. You can paint at Twin Anchors Restaurant, 1655 N. Sedgwick Street. This is an old fashioned restaurant with a 1940’s look. If you walk west, you’ll find the historic St. Michael’s Church at 1633 N Cleveland Street or the Midwest Buddhist Temple at 435 W Menomonee Street. The Old Town Art Center is at 1763 N North Park Ave., which is an interesting street. If you prefer city buildings, stores, and restaurants, then take a walk east to Wells Street. Whatever route you choose, you will not be disappointed. Restrooms at Old Town Triangle Association or Starbucks at 210 W North Ave.

We are fortunate to have a demo this morning from Errol Jacobson, leading Chicago plein air painter. If you haven’t seen one of Errol’s demos, make sure you attend. He is an excellent teacher!

There will be a Members Only Zoom critique with Errol on Wednesday, July 10th at 7pm. Separate posting as to details. Watch your email for the Zoom invite.
