Plein-air artists from the Sanibel-Captiva Art League recently set up their easels at the Sanibel Historical Village and Museum, hoping to capture its architecture and charm on canvas.

The village’s history attracted the artists, who hold a “paint out” every Thursday at different locations on Sanibel and Captiva. It is a challenge to paint outdoors, and everyone paints something different. Some might paint just a tiny part of a building, while others may paint the landscape.

The SCAL is teaming up with the village to offer paintings and other items in the gift shop.

More information will be available as the plans develop.

The Sanibel Captiva Art League has been in operation for more than 50 years. Some members are permanent residents and some are snowbirds; the group even includes visitors from other places. The purpose of the art league is to grow its members’ crafts and skills. It is a 501(c)3 that is interested in taking part in community activities in the way of education.
