On Sunday July 1, 9:30-3:30 the Monterey Museum of Art (MMA) will host a day of plein air painting in conjunction with MBPAPA volunteer coaches, including myself. Stop by and spend some time painting and sketching with us in the gardens of MMA La Mirada. This is a special opportunity for the public to create and relax among the beautiful rose gardens, cypress trees, stone pathways, and charming courtyards of this historic adobe setting.
