Shenandoah Art Destintion, plein air painting

Nestled in the Shenandoah Valley, there are many spots near the Shenandoah Art Destination for plein air painting. Lexington is associated with several known mountains – House Mountain(s) and Hogback Mountain. There are many great painting spots along the Maury River, local grand valley views along with the Natural Bridge, just to name a few. If you want to just stay on-site and paint plein air, you can stand on your balcony or sit on the front porch and paint the bridge over the creek, or the fountain in the pond overlooking the gazebo, or walk up the hill and paint the 1800 log barn, or a few minutes down the road and paint the old schoolhouse and barns. The plein air sites are numerous and fantastic.

*Plein-air retreat is for intermediate to experienced painters.
