The Saint Louis Watercolor Society’s Self Help Painters’ Outing May 31, 2018

Today the STLWS’s Self Help Painters gathered at the Anheuser Estate and Museum, overlooking the Mississippi River, at 6000 Windsor Harbor Ln, Kimmswick, Missouri 63053 .  Although the weather forecast threatened storms, the group lucked out and had a great day of painting on the grounds of the estate.  Some even toured the museum which was an added bonus.

The group sent us some photos to share.  It looks like they had a wonderful day and produced some good paintings of various scenes around the estate.

The next meeting of the STLWS sponsored Urban Sketching event is as follows:

DATE:  Friday, June 8, 2018*
TIME:  9:00 – 11:30 A.M.
MEET AT:  Webster Groves Garden Cafe
117 East Lockwood
Webster Groves, MO

RSVP (if attending) to Carla Baron Giller

*RAIN DATE:  Friday, June 29th


The cafe where we are meeting is in it’s own little yellow building on the north side of Lockwood. It’s very near the Schnarr’s Do It Best Hardware store.  There is a parking lot just west of the cafe and there is street parking.  We will meet at the Webster Groves Garden Cafe and then spread out to sketch, as there are interesting spots around there as well as further up and down Lockwood. It would be easy to get back into your car to drive a few blocks to sketch, and then to reconvene back at the cafe afterwards to show our work. As you may have guessed, we will have an early start time because of the heat.  However, there is lots of shade around so I think it’s doable to sketch outside!

Please contact Carla Baron Giller if you have questions.
