The Impressionists gave us the gift of Plein Air. There is something magical about spending time and connecting with nature while you create. If you haven't tried your hand at it or would like to learn more, join Irina Ashcraft in this workshop as she shares her Plein Air setup as well as her tips and tricks while painting in an outdoor setting. Then we will break to try our own hand at it by picking a scene from your own backyard, or wherever you are enjoying yourself on your summer break. We will come back to share and to give/receive feedback as a group.
