PLEIN AIR PAINTING. TICKETED
ADULT WORKSHOP | Plein Air Painting
Plein air painting is about leaving the four walls of your studio to experiencing painting in the landscape. French Impressionists coined the term over 100 years ago to describe painting in the outdoors to capture natural light and atmosphere and now… sculpture.
Award winning artist Seabastion Toast will lead this enchanting workshop to teach you how to capture those illusive outdoor qualities amongst the SWELL landscape from paint to canvas to create your very own masterpiece.
