Fall Plein Air Classes

Fall is such a short season-why not make the most of it? Join us outdoors in Niagara's  orchards, fields and vineyards while they are bursting with colour. 


Plein Air Painting 
All sessions are held on the Niagara Escarpment, a Unesco world biosphere reserve


These in-depth sessions will address challenges specific to the outdoor painter.  After my trip to Ireland I have learned about packing light, working with a simplified pallet, preparing surfaces and working fast with the changing light! I will share techniques including pre-mixing predominant seasonal pallets, building composition and economy of brushwork. You will be responsible for your own supplies and a list is provided upon registration. Some outdoor easels are available.
Ongoing Mondays and Tuesdays throughout the fall:
10am -12:30pm or 6-8:30pm

  1. Lovely! These are both beautiful. Happy painting!

  2. I agree - both are wonderful paintings and I imagine the workshops/classes will go well with such inspiration all around!
