Spring into Summer:  Figure en Plein Air Workshop


Instructor:  Brianna Lee
Date:  Sunday, June 24 
Time:  9:30am-5:00pm
Cost:  $140
Learn the color of outdoor light on skin tones with a live model en Plein Air. You will be introduced to a limited “light” palette, ideal for creating luminous paintings. The workshop will begin with a brief lecture and demonstration followed by one on one instruction for each individual artist.
This is a great opportunity to explore the merging of two popular subjects: landscape painting and portraiture!  And late Spring is the perfect season to get out your plein air easels and enjoy some fresh air, beautiful weather and apply some paint to your canvases. You are encouraged to bring a lunch.  All skill levels are encouraged to join in, this will be lots of fun so mark your calendars and RSVP today!
