Plein Air Painter 101 with Kathleen Donovan Flaherty

Friday, May 1: 9 am-3:30 pm (includes one-hour lunch break)

Join Kathleen in this beginner’s class for plein air painters.  Have you been toying with the idea of trying this style of painting? Kathleen will demonstrate how she sets up and paints “en plein air” and will share tips she’s learned from experience. You’ll gain a yearning (and the courage!) to venture out into nature, painting on-site. Kathleen will give a short demo and allow time for students to paint. Returning students can expect to receive new challenges. Recommended affordable beginner’s supply list is available online.
