Discover the many joys of plein air painting (painting outdoors) and enjoy the splendor of the NEK’s fall foliage in this experiential class. Students will meet at Catamount Arts, then paint at a different location each week, using water soluble oil paints. Each session will include a demonstration painting on location for students to follow along, followed by painting on your own. Learning to be comfortable with the equipment and materials will make painting outdoors as pleasurable as a walk in the park!
