Four en plain air- picnic days are illustrated below
The most recent was July 2016 at St John Lee, the weather was not great but Ian cooked up hot sausage sandwiches and Wendy and John made cakes, members made some great paintings and sketches, inspired by the leafy churchyard and the open landscapes with poppies injecting surprise colour beyond.

6th August 2015 A day out painting was organised in Lord Allendale's estate at Bywell. Some members were put off by the terrible weather forecast. But the sun came out by lunchtime and the threatening morning clouds passed us by. 

The 'picnic and paint' day on 25th June 2014 was at Corbridge where members sketched on the banks of the Tyne and surrounding town of Corbridge.

July 2013 was at the Church of St John Lees near Corbridge.
