Plein Air Painting – Outdoor class

Let’s go outdoors and practice social distance painting! I’ve been plein air painting for years and invite students to come out and paint. If you want to learn, I will demonstrate from afar, how to pick a spot, find a motif, what to look for, how to simplify, how to set up and from there it’s all magic.

My favorite spots are Central Park, Bolsa Chica Bluffs, Dog Beach but I can venture to other places.
Times | Wednesday and Friday, 9-11 am
Tuition | $3
