Spring Samish Paint Out
May 17-21, 2017
Registration is Now Open
Once again we are offering a five-day weekend of painting (and eating) at a beautiful church camp overlooking Samish Bay in Northwestern Washington, about an hour and a half from Seattle. We will have a relaxing getaway and a chance to work and talk with other painters and share ideas and tips. The views are majestic, including the island itself, with its oyster beds and shoreline, the surrounding waters and the San Juan Islands in the background.
The spring 2017 Samish Camp Paint Out will be held from dinner Wednesday, May 17 through breakfast on Sunday, May 21. No children or pets, please, and no liquor is allowed on the premises. Both beginners and experienced painters are welcome, and you do not need to be a member of the Northwest Watercolor Society to attend.
We have lots of interesting things planned for the weekend.
If you want to attend, please fill out the attached registration form and mail it with a check to the address at the bottom of the form. I’ve had lots of enquiries already, so please get your registration back to me ASAP so you don’t miss out! If you have questions about the weekend, I can be reached at 360-887-2160 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that this is a new address – delete the q.com address from your recordes.
Lodging and all meals are included in the *cost. Two types of lodging are available: 16 newer rooms have attached bathrooms and there is a short walk to the bathrooms for the rustic cabins. As expected, the new e-cabins fill up fast, so get your registration in immediately if that’s what you would like. There is a discount to people who share rooms.
Registration money will be non-refundable after April 18, and final payment is due at that time. Checks should be made out to Northwest Watercolor Society, and can be sent to me at PO Box 381, Ridgefield, WA 98642. Admission is limited, so I suggest you sign up as soon as possible. A payment of $75 will hold your space.
There are enough cabins so everyone can have his or her own cabin, and the cabins have cotsfor four to six people, so if you want to room with friends, that’s possible. Each camper should provide bedding. The standard cabins are basic – heat, lights, and cots with mattresses. Dress for the northwest – cool, misty, hot, sunny, whatever! Bring enough paper and other supplies to last the weekend – there are no nearby art stores.
I’ll send out an e-mail in early May to registrants, giving directions, a map to camp and other information that might prove helpful.
Hope you can come again this year!
*An additional cost of $100 per night is applicable for arrivals after Wednesday. So, for Thursday arrival add $300 to the cost, Friday arrival add $200, and for Saturday arrival add $100.
