Thirteen artists from the Intermountain area gathered at Hat Creek on Saturday, July 25 for an en plein air painting session at Hat Creek Park just off Hwy 299.

Five friends and family also came making the total party 18. The artists painted for almost six hours  from 8:30 in the morning until 2:30 in the afternoon. During the day, numerous tourists and visitors to the park came by to watch the painting in progress.

Patricia Carlson from Burney, a well-known professional artist, said, “Almost everyone finished at least one painting. I would have finished two, except the ‘wildlife’ kept getting in the way and asking questions.”

The group is planning two more outings, one at Baum Lake and one in Mount Shasta Park.
