If you’ve ever wanted to try painting outside (en plein air) this is the workshop for you. If you want to have fun, learn, and walk away with your first ever plein air painting, you need to register for this workshop.
Sign up today! Spaces are limited.
Artists are made, not born. They are made one painting at a time. This workshop is for anyone who has never or has limited experience with plein air (outdoor) painting.
We’ve created a safe learning environment just for you to experience how much fun plein air (outdoor) painting can be. Painting outside is an adventure for anyone who wants to try.
If you’ve never picked up a paintbrush or if you’ve only painted in the studio but never outside, then this is your class. Don’t just take my word for it, here are some comments from last year’s participants:
Absolutely loved the class. Janice and Jay were extremely knowledgeable, their presentation was great and they were so patient and helpful. The hands on and getting to apply the principals of the lecture and paint on canvas was exactly what I wanted to get to do in this class.
This was such a pleasant, inspirational, learning experience for me!
It was very good! Jay and Janice were awesome! The paint partners was such a terrific idea and I enjoyed immensely. Thanks to these guys, I have the courage to go to paintouts! Friendly and laid back! Yay!
Upon conclusion of this class you will be able to:
• Identify plein air reference books for your library
• Identify basic plein air safety
• Identify basic plein air materials and equipment
• Practice plein air painting (You will walk away with your first plein air painting!)
