Loudoun Sketch Club

Creating and Supporting the Visual Arts in Loudoun County, Virginia since 1944.

Welcome to the historic Loudoun Sketch Club!


Our mission is twofold – to foster plein air (outdoor) painting at different venues throughout Loudoun County and beyond by scheduling painting days every Tuesday from May through October, weather permitting. We also host at least one art show per year so that the public can view the art that is created by our members. Many of the paintings have been done en plein air or have begun outside and completed back in the studio.

Within this site, you will find information about our upcoming art shows that are open to the public, links to our member artists, as well as information about joining the Loudoun Sketch Club should that be your desire. We are currently considering the addition of new members twice a year as our membership is large and renews annually in September. You are welcome to fill out an online application on the Membership page. You will be placed on the waitlist, and please be assured that you will be notified should our numbers allow the addition of new members.

Our historic organization still thrives on the joy of painting en plein air amidst our beautiful vistas and with the camaraderie of fellow Loudoun Sketch Club painters, photographers and mixed media artists. We welcome you to visit our website often to explore the creativity that is showcased here.

Thank you for your interest in the Loudoun Sketch Club~

Cindy Bridgman, President, 2016-2018
