1 The autumn trees at the bridge on Carlton Rd, Holgate, near the CCGS Oval A 38
These are the locations I have put together for our April paint outs. The weather is now cooler and kinder to us for outdoor painting. April/May is when we enjoy the colours of the autumn trees. Last year they were just brilliant so letus hope it is like that again this year, although it is hard to predict what date they will be at their best. The location at the bridge on Carlton Rd, Holgate is a new location. Please note that there are no public toilet facilities here. Suggestions for other new locations are always welcomed. If you haven’t been to our paint outs before bring your painting/ sketching gear, your hat, your chair, eats and drinks and come along to join in. There are no starting or finishing times, come and go as you please. Morning tea is at 10am and lunch, 12Noon.
Non members of the CCAS are welcomed to attend.
