Peninsula Outdoor Painters (POPs) started in 1977, and is now an established group of painters whose membership is open to all painters and every skill level. We share a passion to capture and express the awesome beauty of the San Francisco peninsula. There is nothing better to us than a blank canvas in front of a coastal, mountain, or bayside scene ... being present in the place, watching the light and viewing the wildlife. We enjoy our companionship which always has a smile for you and your paintings.

Members participate in Tuesday morning paintouts at varying frequencies. There are no charges (other than park entry fees) and you don't have to call anyone if you can't make it.  Paintout locations are on this website. Most paint from 9:30am to 12:30pm, then bag lunches are eaten and morning works are admired. No critiques are held; yet expert advice is freely given if requested.

If you would like to join POPs, just show up for a paint-out and ask the painters on how to get on the email list ... it's that easy.
