The Guild of Berkshire Artists meet each day outdoors to paint, draw and photograph at different places. In ArtWeek, any artists of any level can join them, and anyone can watch artists at work. They will paint until noon, then stop for lunch (bring your own sandwiches and art supplies) and share work with encouragement. Bring supplies.

They will get together Thursdays at The Mount, Fridays in Lenox, Saturday in West Stockbridge (by the Post office), Sundays at the Norman Rockwell Museum on the grounds, Mondays at Hancock Shaker Village and Tuesdays near Lake Cheshire or Oxbow. They have held these meetings this for several years, and this year they are open to anyone. They ask people to sign up by 6:30 p.m. the night before and check for updates at 8 a.m. on the morning of the meeting.

The Guild of Berkshire Artists is holding plein air painting outdoors at different places each day, as late in the season as the weather allows. For daily updates, check their Instagram.

By the Way Berkshires is a digital magazine exploring creative life and community — art and performance, food and the outdoors — and I’m writing it for you, with local voices, because I’ve gotten to know this rich part of the world as a writer and journalist, and I want to share it with you.

If you’d like to see the website grow, you can join me for a few dollars a month, enough for a cup of coffee and a cider doughnut. Members get access to extra stories and multimedia, itineraries a bookmark tool. Let me know what you're looking for, and we’ll explore together.
