Plein Air

What is Plein Air?

Plein Air, simply described is painting outdoors rather than in a studio. The term comes from the French 'en plein air,' meaning 'in the open air.' Impressionist painters were particularly interested in the influence of changing light and the effects of light on color when outdoors. Monet is a popular example of a plein air painter. 

This event is held annually - check back for more information for the Fifth Annual Plein Air Painting Event to be held in August 2019.
