During the pandemic, we stay at home a lot and because of this, we often spend more hours staring at the computer screens. Believe it or not, we need more AFK (“Away from Keyboard”) time now more than ever. 

Warrior Painters is organizing this AFK Plein-air Painting Exhibit to showcase what we like to do, where we like to explore, and how relaxing life can be when we just take a break and go outside. Let's celebrate AFK time and go painting!
