Plein Air Group

The QAS Plein Air Group meet on Tuesdays every week, from 9 – 11/11.30am.  We travel here and there, to interesting places. We favour places with good parking, space, public conveniences; and we follow up with coffee at the nearest café. At present we are at Duffy café – great coffee!
This year we’ve worked around Lake Burley Griffin, The English Garden and Weston Park. There are fabulous places and vistas in those spots. We are now venturing further out and will be at Casuarina Sands for a while. 
An email is sent out on Monday night to confirm the place and meeting spot (we have to check the weather for the next day). 

If you would like to join the QAS Tuesday Plein Air Group, please contact Rosanna Burston on 0418 863 428.
