Art for the Journey is raising funds for art kits to be delivered to many adults and children for whom we serve art programs designed to promote well-being. During the weeks where we are unable to be together face to face, these kits will provide retreat, opportunity for creative expression and hopefully well-being in the most socially isolated people of our community. We invite community artists to join the plein-air painting experience at a beautiful daylily farm in Chesterfield County to help support this initiative. We are excited to have the opportunity to be socially distant and paint in a lovely setting, and raise funds to help others all at the same time!

The event will be held in a beautiful flower farm behind the Food Lion on Luck's Lane at Courthouse Road in Chesterfield County. Participants can park in the Food Lion parking lot after driving through the entrance to the lily farm to drop off their art supplies, or walk a path from the Food Lion parking lot up to the lily field. Artists need to bring there own supplies, however, Art for the Journey can provide supplies for a fee of $15.00. Just let us know!

To register for the event, go to the donation tab on this site. Enter your $25 donation and in the notes say: "For the lilies". If you would like to donate more than $25.00, we will be grateful for this, just indicate your participation in the note section.

This is the fourth annual Art for the Journey plein-air painting event at Don Bright's lily garden, and we are delighted to extend it to the community at large. Wear boots if you would like to walk deep into the fields of lilies, to be safe from "critters." ~as per Don. Bring your snack, water, lunch....we will practice social distancing by remaining separate during this experience. We will have masks available for closer conversation, but, with fresh air, if you choose not to wear a mask, is is at your own risk. Hopefully this sunshine and natural setting will be a lovely way to socially distance and paint in community all while raising funds to help many!
