Plein Air

Plein Air Painting: Adventure in Watercolor

This is a chance to learn the skills of painting while soaking in the beautiful surroundings of Cape Cod. Doris Rice, experienced plein air (outdoor) watercolorist, returns to the Center for her popular annual summer class and will guide students to a full painting experience. Students will learn the steps to success!

We'll meet and have a basic introduction, and then move along to the painting location. Students will learn how to select a subject, which will be followed by a step-by-step painting demonstration. We will be working outside on location for the day.

Materials available on loan for $10/day, if you don't have your own watercolor supplies. A lunch break will be in there somewhere... and finally, a review around 2:30 p.m. of the day's efforts with constructive critique. Bring lunch, water, and a hat.

Loaner materials: $10/day payable to the instructor.
