Field Trips, Community Events & More

Unfortunately our field trips, paint outs and involvement in community events are all on hold during the COVID-19 pandemic. We're looking forward to seeing you in person again, as soon as the times allow.

MAA hosts a number of field trips, paint outs and other special events throughout the year for our members and guests. We also participate in a number of events in our community, including the Kensington Day of the Book Festival and the Wheaton Arts Parade.

If you have any idea for an event, please email us at

Recent Events

Group visit to the Glenstone Museum in Potomac, Md.: We felt quite lucky to score 25 tickets to the exclusive Glenstone Museum in Potomac. Together we toured the contemporary art museum and grounds in February 2020. We even became a part of one exhibition by dining on mushroom soup together (hard to explain -- you have to go there and see it for yourself!).

On a lovely day in November, 20 MAA members painted ones of the county's most beautiful farms--Tusculum Farm in Laytonsville. Our members added to the ambiance of the farm's fall festival.
