    To all who are in west of GTA,

    I would like to arrange a set of paintings events around GTA West.

    Lets start with streetsville!!

    This area has a lot to paint. It is historical and colourful. With boutiques, art stores.

    We will be in the "city " as well close to the beautiful  "credit river".

    This Monday at 10:00 am we can meet at the main square, which is:

    if you have any question, please let me know.

    Hello Joshua (and OPAS friends),

    This is a great idea and THANK YOU for taking the initiative to post a Plein Air painting in Streetsville. I won't be able to come next Monday but look forward to other West-End GTA painting adventures.

    May I suggest the parks around Visual Arts Mississauga as a future event?

    Hi Rose Ann,

    Thank you for your encouraging words.

    Let me know what day of the week is good for you?!

    Great idea, we can do the parks too.

    We can go to port credit, Oakville and many other locations.

    I hope more artists will join GTA West events.

    Thank you,

    Joshua

    Lake side, there is the Jack Darling park which is really nice but busy on weekends. River Run park along Credit View is also nice. Further north, we can look at the Terracotta conservation area.

    That is Great, so will see you on Monday.

    We can talk about the next location, and days of the week, when we meet.

    Thanks,

    Joshua

    Hi All,

    I would love to join and I live in Mississauga, but I work during the week. Could we do a paint out on Sunday morning?

    Hello Maria and other OPAS painters, I go to church on Sunday mornings and would prefer Saturday or Sunday afternoons. Rose Ann Vita

    Hi Joshua,

    I only just saw this. Please post these as OPAS Events. So many more members will hear about the paint-out if you do so. It's easy to post an event. Click here for a guideline on setting up paint-outs.

    Paint-outs are up to the members to call. It's great to see you taking the initiative.
