Art Workshop: Plein Air Painting in Oil
This workshop invites the public to participate in the rich tradition of plein air painting in the Sunnylands gardens. In this workshop, instructor Donna Reine will guide participants to depict what they see and devote personal attention to each artist’s level. After a demonstration from Donna, participants will work in the gardens to paint the subject of their choice. The session will end with group sharing and critique. This workshop is designed to be fun while stimulating creative impulses.
Materials needed: Plein air easel or table easel (there will be tables and chairs to accommodate those who bring table easels), canvas or canvas board (approximately 11″ x 14″), oil painting supplies (including oil paints and brushes), odorless turpenoid, rags or paper towels for cleanup, and drop cloths for your work area.
