Field Trips, Community Events & More

MAA offers a number of field trips each year, and we participate in community events. We hope you'll join us for one of these wonderful opportunities to spend time with fellow artists and visit exciting art venues in and around DC and in other cities, too.

Past Events

Sketch Night at AMP by Strathmore in North Bethesda
We were so excited to resume this activity, which we started in 2019. Members went together to the music club and sketched the performer Christie Dashiell. We then met Christie after the show so she could take a look at our work. She loved them so much that she made a video of them for her Instagram account!

Docent-led tour of the Giuseppe DeNittis exhibition at the Phillips Collection in Washington 

Group visit to see Yayoi Kusama's exhibition at the Hirshhorn Museum in Washington: The museum reserved 30 spots for us at the often sold out exhibit. We toured together, then enjoyed coffee at the ground-floor cafe.

Group visit to the Glenstone Museum in Potomac, Md.: We always feel lucky to score tickets to the exclusive Glenstone Museum in Potomac. Together we toured the contemporary art museum and grounds in February 2020 and January 2022.

Fall Festival plein air painting at Tusculum Farm: On a lovely day in November 2020, 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.

Plein Air Painting at Black Ankle Vineyards: In October 2019, we spent an afternoon painting en plein air at a pretty vineyard set among the rolling hillside of the Central Maryland and tasted Black Ankle Vineyards' amazing wine.

Tour of the Baltimore Museum of Art: Members escaped the summer heat and spent a few hours together on a private, docent-led tour of the Baltimore Museum of Art In August 2019.
