Plein Air Painting Workshop

A two-day painting workshop with Lisbeth Firmin

SOLD OUT!

Please contact our office if you would like to be put on the waiting list.

En plein air is a French expression meaning “in the open air,” and has come to refer to the style and practice of painting outdoors. Plein air artists capture the spirit of a landscape or subject by incorporating natural light, color, and movement into their work.

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.

Saturday and Sunday, July 17 & 18 at The West Kortright Centre in East Meredith

10am - 4pm each day (with an hour break for lunch)

For Adults

Price: $120 ($100 for WKC Members)

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

Pre-registration is required. Limited to 10 participants.
