FA544) Plein Air Painting for Beginners

 Have you ever wanted to take your art to the next level by painting outdoors? Plein air painting can be challenging, with weather, fading light, moving backgrounds, and curious onlookers, but it can be tremendously rewarding as you create images that are more lively than those in a studio. Join us for this overview of Plein Air painting, including how to begin the process, getting the tools you will need, tricks to capture the best lighting and images, and ways to enliven your painting process. This hands-on class will include painting outdoors (weather permitting). Please dress for the weather and bring oil paints and an outdoor-friendly easel if possible.
