"The group is dedicated to fostering the outdoor painting experience by providing congenial outdoor painting opportunities . . . this year, [group member Sarah Zak] presented them with the idea of painting sites in need of preservation.
It is [the group's] goal to bring positive attention to these buildings; not only is it an opportunity to paint together, but also an opportunity to promote the well-being of these historically significant and beautiful buildings and their communities."
Their first preservation event is Tuesday, March 29, 2011, at 9:30 AM at the Old Blacksmith Shop on the corner of South Park Avenue and Illinois Street.
