Plein  Air

IMG_5992 copy.jpg

Plein air is about leaving the four walls of your studio behind and experiencing painting, drawing and photography in the outdoors. The practice goes back for centuries, but was truly made into an art form by the French Impressionists.

This is a Membership Benefit!  Bring your own supplies, whether acrylics, oils, watercolors, pastels, pencils, ink or just come to enjoy the environment.

Urban Sketching, as the name implies, artists use a sketch book instead of an easel.  Your supples should fit in a small area.  In places such as Starbucks, artists should probably buy a snack or coffee as we’d be taking up customer space.  Let’s get together to relax, socialize, and work on art.
