Plein Aire season is coming upon us!
A group of us PAL folks will be meeting every Friday between 10am- noon May to September in a pre-specified location – see calendar.

Plein Aire is a french term meaning painting out in the open air. It is an invigorating process where we have the opportunity to capture the moment. Often in a loose impressionistic manner. It aids in seeing color, value, large shapes. It aids in loose painting techniques. It improves your drawing skills and your composition skills. And it’s fun.

PAL painters will gather, we’ll decide on what we want to paint that day and then we’ll paint, draw or take pictures. Afterwards we gather again, show each other our work and talk about whatever we discovered that painting day.

Bring your camera, sketch book, pencils, colored pencils, markers, paints and easels. Whatever suits your fancy. Just come out and gather your own image and inspirations. If you can make these paint outs, we welcome you. If not, then we hope to see you on the next paint out.
