Having had the honor of being 2016's Socalpapa President, I can assure you we are having fun painting together, showing and selling our artwork to the community in various art shows, competing for awards and always learning how to be a better painter by watching established artists in demos we organize during the year.  Some of our members may be relatively new to outdoor painting and others have years' worth of experience. Socalpapa welcomes them all and offers each member an opportunity to learn from others.
