We are offering a special opportunity for artists to join us for an “en plein air” event.  Bring your paint, brushes, canvas and other supplies and spend the morning at our Taylor Ranch Preserve on March 10.

This Preserve has unusual and interesting rock formations, the beautiful, gently flowing Raccoon Creek, and spectacular panoramic views of the Sierra Nevada foothills and Sacramento Valley if you take a short hike up the trail.

This is a wilderness outing in a natural setting:  there are no restrooms, benches, or water available. Please plan ahead and bring what you will need. We suggest you wear sturdy shoes, clothing appropriate for the weather conditions, (we suggest long pants), and a hat, sunscreen & mosquito repellent.

Bring your own water and snacks to enjoy.

We have a “leave no trace” policy – if you pack it in, please pack it out.

Sorry, no dogs are allowed on our Preserves, unless service animals.

Participants must sign a release of liability here: 2018 Blank Liability Waiver Photo Release   Please print and bring it with you.

We request a $10 minimum donation per person which allows us to offer these events. We accept cash or checks at the event, or you can donate online via credit card at https://www.placerlandtrust.org/donate/ . Let us know if you are a member of the Arts Council of Placer County.

The gate opens at 9am and closes at 12:30 giving you 3.5 hours of uninterrupted painting time on our private preserve.  Directions will be emailed after registration. The deadline to sign up is the Friday before at noon or when it fills up.

This event is FULL. To be placed on a wait list, please contact Janet at janet.voris@placerlandtrust.org or call the office at 530-887-9222.
