Event Website/Tickets  

Connect with nature, the city, and to learn how to paint in the moment, making quick decisions about elements such as composition and colour with instructor and artist, April Morris.

Thousands of artists have begun this practice by taking their supplies outdoors into the landscape and cities to capture the hustle and bustle of everyday life. In this class, we will get a chance to escape the walls of our studio space and experience painting in the outdoors. To prepare, we will learn various watercolour painting techniques in the virtual classroom. We will also learn the history of plein air painting by looking at many artists that have used this technique before us. By the end of this course you will learn how to watercolour paint, prepare for and complete Plain Air paintings and to display your work in new creative ways.
