Upcoming Workshop

Spring is coming, and with it come opportunities to paint outdoors. At our March meeting, Stacey Sass presented a wonderful guide to the history and practice of plein air painting.  AWC will soon be reviving ad hoc plein air paint-outs. These will be occasional events in which our members will meet at a pre-announced location and simply paint together. No fee, no instruction, no pressure.  Watch for announcements here and by email about these events.

Plein Air Painting Workshop

On Thursday April 26 we held our first instructional plein air workshop.  Linda Luke stepped in for Carolyn Councell who had a family emergency but a great time was enjoyed by twelve participants.  After a demonstration and talk, we set up our easels around the lake which has an attractive bridge, fountain and gazebo making the Quiet Waters Park location ideal for painting en plein air.  Note the blue skies and sunshine- what perfect weather as well!  Thanks to Carolyn and Linda for making the day a success.
