FREE Valley Forge Plein Air Classes

Announcing a this year's art program here at Valley Forge NHP in partnership with Chester County Art Association: Creative Space For Everyone

How it's going to work is the program will be led by myself and park rangers. There will be a brief overview of the history of the site we are visiting, and then we move into the creative art portion of the program.  Painting and drawing or photography will be encouraged. I will be there to help you regardless of your skill level in any art medium you decide to explore that day.  However, you have to provide your own art equipment.

 If you don't want any instruction...no problem.  Come on out and paint. 

Dates, times, and locations are listed below.  If you have any questions on how to get to any of the locations, please ask. 

Here's the long awaited summer schedule! Please note that our sessions will be taking place on Saturday and Sunday. All dates and times are subject to change. Details with where to park and addresses will be posted as the date gets closer.
