Artist Getaway

Murphys 2019

Welcome to Artist Getaway!

An Artist Getaway trip is a plein air painting vacation for any level of experience and in any medium - watercolor, oil, acrylic, pastels, etc. Artist Getaway was founded in 2012 to support artists in their work and provide opportunities to paint outside in locations near the Bay Area.


Scroll below for pictures from the Murphys 2019 Artist Getaway! While the weather was hot, it didn’t get in the way of our fun. The Stanislaus River was high from all the winter snow and Big Trees Calaveras State Park was a great place to paint.


Congratulations to Lisa Blaylock for capturing the Artist's Choice prize and to Samantha McNally for winning the People’s Choice prize. Thank you to everyone who participated and made the event a success!

Stay tuned this fall for announcements for 2020 Getaways!
