Plein Air Painting Workshop

For the 46th season at the WKC, we present Lisbeth Firmin's Plein Air Worshop!

In this two-day workshop, students will be working in color to paint the beautiful environs around the WKC. Lisbeth Firmin, known for her urban landscapes, will be leading the class and demonstrating before each session. Her approach is no drawing, just starting right in with big brushes and large areas of color.

Students can bring any medium to work in including oils, pastels, gouache or watercolor. Everyone should be able to produce two paintings a day.

Pre-registration is required. Limited to 10 participants.
