What is Plein Air Painting?  
Plein air painting is about leaving the studio behind and experiencing painting and drawing in the landscape. The practice was truly made into an art form by the French Impressionists. Their desire to paint light and its changing, ephemeral qualities, coupled with the creation of transportable paint tubes and the box easel—the precursor to the plein air easels of today—allowed artists the freedom to paint “en plein air,” which is the French expression for “in the open air.”














Beginner and Intermediate Painters Welcome!
This plein air (outdoor) oil painting workshop is for beginning to intermediate level students. Each day we will approach the painting with a guided process in order to create a successful landscape painting.
