Paint-Out at Zoo Atlanta, September 12th

Attention plein-air artists and panda lovers! We're passing along information about a great paint-out coming up to benefit the giant pandas at Zoo Atlanta. Please pass this information along to anyone else who might be interested. The image links to the accompanying PDF flyer.

The Marietta/Cobb Museum of Art and Zoo Atlanta have teamed up to provide area artists with a unique plein-air painting and drawing opportunity.

In order to benefit Zoo Atlanta's giant pandas and the "Give So They Stay" campaign, the zoo has invited us to spend a Saturday afternoon creating art of these beloved animals. With a $20 donation to the panda program, all participants will receive free admission for themselves and all their painting and drawing gear to Zoo Atlanta! This is a unique opportunity to work from life and benefit in-need animals.

Saturday, September 12, 2009, 1:00-6:00 pm.

All participants must prepay by Wednesday, September 9, 2009. Checks and cash only; checks made payable to "Zoo Atlanta" with "Give So They Stay" in the notes section. Mail payment to the Marietta/Cobb Museum of Art, 30 Atlanta Street, Marietta GA 30060 or bring it by in person.

For more information, email MCMA intern Emily Ryals at emhdarby@gmail.com
