Nancy Tyler, Board member and OPS Publicity Director comments on the benefits of membership for a "studio painter":


 "Being a active member of Outdoor Painters Society will not only enhance your resume but most importantly will improve your studio paintings....IF you take full advantage of the benefits of OPS membership, that is.  Outdoor Painters Society has 8-9 paint-out events per year, mostly in Texas.  If you join us on several of the scheduled paint-out trips you are presented with painting challenges to solve, constantly learning, and surrounded by other painters willing to share their tips and experiences.  Being outside and painting from life will propel your art faster, sharing with other artists will propel your learning faster, and learning to capture the basics in a short painting time while solving problems will be beneficial in boosting your time management as well.  Your drafting skills may be top notch but when you learn to combine a color study produced outdoors, on site, with a photograph reference, your studio results will be so much more lively and believable."                  


OUTDOOR PAINTERS SOCIETY also promotes member exhibitions, plein air competitions, brings in workshops with nationally recognized artists, and boasts a members-only DVD lending library with about 50 titles (members pay postage and may review the DVD for 14 days). Once a member, you can search the members list by  state, zip code . or city to find other member artists in your area.


We hope you join our like-minded community of painters and look forward to meeting you on the "painting trail"!
