Thursday Painting

Our members come from all over the globe. Artists and art groups love to come to beautiful Sarasota to paint. Artists are always welcome to paint with the Light Chasers any Thursday.

To find out where the Light Chasers are painting click on "Sunday Letter" on the top right of the Home Page. That will take you to all the Sunday Letters. Each letter describes a beautiful place to paint with driving directions. Paint Sarasota! It’s beautiful here!

In "Season" [October to April] we often have 30 to 50 painters on Thursday morning. Off season we still often have 20 or more painters Thursday morning.

Light Chasers are fun, friendly, helpful, and kind. We care about each other and we care about our environment. Join us anytime you visit beautiful Sarasota County.
