Every year, one of the most anticipated and well-attended paint-outs for members of the Nature Artists’ Guild is the trip to Orchids by Hausermann, 2N134 North Addison Road, in Villa Park, IL.
On Tuesday, February 11, 2014, attendees will meet at about 8 am and spend the next few hours among thousands of blooming orchids that are looking their best just in time to be sketched, drawn, painted or photographed (or even purchased if you’d like to take your model home with you). One lucky participant will even win a certificate for a free orchid to take home with them.
Attendance is limited to about 15, so please contact Carol Jean Rogalski to save your spot (if you are a new member and do not yet have your Yearbook with Carol Jean’s contact information, please let us know in the comments section below, and we will send you the information).
It’s a wonderful way to spend a cold winter day! You may want to click on this link to Hausermann’s website for a preview of what you can look forward to. If you’d like to see more photos of last year’s artists at work, please click here. All photos from last year are courtesy of Evelyn Grala.
