Plein Air Painting
pleinairHave you ever been inspired by the landscape? Join us for this introduction to painting outside, also known as "plein air" painting. We will meet for 3 weeks, on Sundays from 2-5pm. This class will provide a basic foundation to creating a landscape painting. We will work from direct observation, sketching and photographing the landscape. This reference material will help us to build a painting in the studio or directly in nature. Demonstrations, and a history of landscape painting, will give you the basics to be a successful outdoor painter!

The tiles need to set for at least 72 hours, and then we can grout the tables to finish the process. End up with a side table as an accent in a room, or on a porch. We have some beautiful new colors and tiles, so please join us! If these dates don't work for you, contact Rachael to schedule another time. We will meet on two evenings to tile our tables.
