Lisa Stauffer En Plein.jpg

Explore painting outside and capture the beauty of August in Minnesota. Instructor demonstrations will be in pastels, but feel free to join the class and explore plein air (outdoor) painting in whatever medium you feel comfortable with. The basics of outdoor painting will be discussed throughout the workshop, as well as topics including choosing your subject, design and compositional considerations, the importance of accurate drawing, painting fundamentals, and more. Delve into the effective application of color, value, intensity, and temperature. This will be a gentle introduction to the joys of the plein air experience and will include time inside the studio as well as outdoors, weather allowing. Instructor demonstrations, personal assistance, and group critiques will give us a chance to learn as we explore plein air painting in a fun and supportive environment.
