Plein Air Adventure

Nov. 4-May 26, 2021

This class happens weekly with SOCIAL DISTANCING (Set up 10 feet from the nearest artist) Have an adventure, discover beautiful and historic places in Pinellas county and learn the basics of plein air painting from a professional. Start with a viewfinder to choose the best composition and learn to make a value sketch, color study, mix warm and cool greens, reflections in water and cloudscapes. Class happens on a different site each week, starts with a demo then individual help while you paint, ends with a group critique. Make a completed plein air painting each class, and see the prettiest places in the county. Nocturne class included in each session, and exhibition opportunities. Sponsored by Ampersand Art
