Plein Air Pop-Ups

Sat, Jul 9, 10 am–1 pm | Varina Public Library

Let’s make art outdoors! Inspired by the VMFA exhibition Whistler to Cassatt: American Painters in France, we’re hosting art-making celebrations at scenic spaces around Richmond.

Bring your own paints and paper, or any art-making materials! At each pop-up location, a limited number of easels will be provided on a first-come, first-served basis. You can purchase art supplies at the VMFA Shop or at vmfashop.com.

The Varina Library is located at 1875 New Market Road, Henrico, VA, 23231. Parking is available onsite.

Free. All are welcome; no experience required.

Get inspired! Watch VMFA’s Studio School instructors give a few how-to tips.
