The AGAMI Plein Air group invites you to the next gathering:

For the month of January and February, we will be painting on Holmes Beach and Anna Maria Island in preparation for participating in the AGAMI “Paint the Town” event that takes place in the whole month of February. Check the AGAMI website for updates on the “Paint the Town” event.
Choose a spot that you like in each Tuesday morning's area and enjoy painting!
