Inspired by the popular 19th century French tradition of painting in the open air (“en plein air”), this new class will feature the spring splendor of Morven’s beautiful gardens.  Participants will discover the quality of natural light (and how it changes during the session), explore how color can define forms, learn how to represent natural colors, and experiment with brush strokes and creating textures.  Instruction is geared toward beginning/intermediate skill levels but all levels welcome.
