Plein Air Primer

August 20th only

This field is required.


Let’s do some plein air painting! You will learn the basics from equipment and set up to proven techniques that guide you to successful plein air studies.  Composition and values using thumbnail sketches and Notans will be covered. This class will offer kind critique and guidance as the student works through the class.  Instructor will do demos and share years of plein air experience! Register for one day only on August 21st, or sign up for both days for extended instruction and practice and paint new subject matter on the second day.
