Plein Air Events


DVAL members love plein air in almost any weather, and we are lucky to have a mind-boggling range of places to paint outdoors. Old farms, quirky towns, historic buildings, parks and gardens, rivers and nature centers all call out to us as we drive by.

The Newlin Grist Mill and the surrounding 160-acre park is a place for exploration of both history and the environment. It features a working grist mill and over 8 miles of nature trails. You can learn more about the mill at its website. (website
