 Paint site Guidelines

Please check the Paintsites website for details including directions and possible cancellations. To keep our members and guests as safe as possible during the COVID-19 era, we must change how we do things. Some of the paint sites have visitor limits. When this occurs we will post the information in paint site details on the SCVWS website. Participants must wear masks and observe the 6 ft. distancing rule. We no longer take photos of paintings on site. Please take your own photo, crop if needed, and submit  to paintsites@scvws.org according to our Weekly Blog submission guidelines.  

Blog Submission Guidelines

We invite Paintsites' artists to paint or sketch during the week, pick one painting from that week and submit it by Saturday of that week. Here are some guidelines:

  • Submit a digital photo of your artwork to paintsites@scvws.org. Cropped photos are preferred.
  • Include your name, the date and comments about the site or unique media notes.
  • Be creative! Some of your best subjects are in or around your home. You may want to paint from personal photos of your travels.
  • Submissions after Saturday midnight will appear in the following week's blog.
  • One submission per member per week, please.

 

"Eleven brave aerialists attended a birds-eye view of Santana Row. It was a challenge a la Richard Diebenkorn and his aerial views.  We had good air quality, shade, social distancing and a choice of 360 degree views."  Alison, Paintsites Leader

Words from Leader Alison:  We had a moderate turnout despite the atmospheric conditions. Six artists painted in an abbreviated session due to haze from wildfires blanketing the area. The conditions provided some interesting shadows.
