En Plein Air Buds 
MAG sponsors a group of artists who paint landscapes at various sites weekly throughout the year. This is known as "En Plein Air," french for "in plain air" and the practice sparked the Impressionist movement. Lunch follows a morning of painting.
July 15 Paint Out
Paint with the Buds at Banner Nursery, 4400 Monroe Rd Charlotte, NC 28205  Be sure you bring your art supplies, hat, sunscreen, camp chair if you want to sit, and lots of water to drink. It's not far from Lupies.
While they are working on giving more lead time, sites or final details are announced just prior to the event, so request to be on the Plein Air Buds mailing list via presidentmag@gmail.com.
Places to Paint Out
The Buds are always looking for suggestions. Luchi suggested the Lavender Farm in SC where our own Cynthia Howard is teaching a workshop which is unfortunately sold out. Seewww.labastideslavendes.com   May I suggest... Daniel Stowe Botanical Gardens, The Royal Gardens on 7th St., Campbell Greenhouse behind Mr K's on South Blvd near Atherton Mill. Roundtree off Old Pineville Rd and Growers in Pineville on South Blvd. and always my favorite Humter Farm in Weddington. Anyone else have an idea?  
Be on the lookout for great places to paint out and send suggestions. Looking  forward to hearing where they plan to go next. Thanks Debbie.
