Art in the Park: Plein Air Gatherings
September 11, 2019 @ 9:00 am
An event every week that begins at 9:00 am on Wednesday, repeating until October 30, 2019
The Plein Air Gatherings are an opportunity for artists to paint or draw outdoors “en plein air” in the parks. All adult artists who use any medium conducive to working outdoors are welcome. If you are new to plein air painting or would like to try it but are hesitant to go out on your own, these gatherings are a perfect opportunity to meet and work with experienced plein air artists.
Bring whatever supplies and equipment you need and dress for ground and weather conditions.There is no fee or registration. It is not necessary to attend every session—come when you can.
