Northern Colorado Paint-Out Group

We usually meet up (coffee, or paint-out) on the third Wednesday or Thursday of each month.  We alternate to accommodate members’ needs and schedules as best we can.  At that meeting, we decide when and where the next coffee or paint-out will be.  Then I send a group email to all the NOCO members.  No RSVPS, nothing required.  Sometimes there are 8 of us, sometimes 2.  Very low-key and casual.  If you would like to be on our email list, please contact Karen Spotts at
