REMINDER, SKETCH OUTINGS ARE FREE
The Maritime Museum has been a great painting spot for us over the years. The Museum is closed but there is a lot of great sketching subjects, plus for those who want to exercise their plein air skills, it's also a good sunset spot. There's also the golf course and surrounding grounds that are very nice. It should be a nice warm evening this week to sketch by the water and hopefully it will be an awesome sunset.
Folks, the Patchogue Sketch Club is a free group. I paid out of my own pocket to use Meetup, but all outings are free unless the venue we go to requests admission.
Also, please visit our Facebook Group at https://www.facebook.com/groups/patchsketch/

We are going to park at the field closest to the Lighthouse, Field 5, I think, anyway, go to the very end of the parking lot closest to the light house and we'll all be scattered around there.
There is a path you can follow, some folks sketched on the walkway last time we were there.

On Wednesday the 19th we will be sketching (or plein air painting) at Smith Point, which for those of you painting in Paint the Great South Bay, that’s in bounds and if you get your canvases stamped early you can paint that Wednesday evening. We will start at 6;30. You can park in the huge lot but I personally will be parking all the way to the west side of the parking lot. I know some of you mentioned a band and such, you can go there or paint down by the refuge side where I am going to be.

This week we are going to sketch at Avery Farm on South Country Road. I don't have an exact address but it's between the Swan Deli and Robinson Blvd. There are two driveways into the property, the driveway you want to use is the one closest to Robinson Blvd. It's the second driveway on the left if you are traveling East Bound from Main Street on S Country Rd or it's the first driveway on the right after Robinson if you are coming West Bound (from Bellport) on S Country Rd. It's a dirt driveway, the groomed one is the wrong driveway to use.
When you come in, SLOWLY drive to the back, you'll see the driveway extends back into the property, go all the way around bearing right toward the barn. There will a long paddock to your left please park head in to the paddock so that everyone fits. Please do not park along side the barn in case people want to sketch the barn.
This is a SKETCH AT YOUR OWN RISK site. It's a farm and farms are not paved, watch your step...bring good shoes and bug proof clothes.
