There are many places in and around Sedona suitable for painting, from Schnebly Hill to Red Rock Crossing. We will choose one or more when we are closer to the date and have a firmer idea of headcount, as some locations are more generously proportioned. We may choose to paint in more than one location. Red rock vistas, pines, and sometimes streams/water are all possible views.
After the paint out, meet at the Water Tower an 12pm for lunch and critique
