Learn to do Plein Air Painting!



Have you been wanting to learn to do Plein Air Painting (painting out of doors on location) or use the equipment you bought and do not know where to begin? It’s confusing at first with so many options and directions to go…this class will help you make an educated choice without wasting time and money.  Here’s an opportunity to learn to set up the equipment you already have or might want to buy, how to prepare for painting and suggestions on paints and other materials needed for painting on location.

Class Description

The first class we’ll look at various types of painting boxes, materials to choose from and using the equipment, etc. I will bring a variety of different setups and materials so you can get a feel for painting outside.  The next 4 weeks, with instruction, we will go out and paint in the field. I will demonstrate and help you get started with composition, what colors to select, defining values and many more helpful hints to get you started on the correct path. If the weather doesn’t cooperate with us, we’ll do projects inside the classroom at Blaine’s that will help with the learning process.

If you have supplies bring your equipment that you already have for the first class…box, paints, brushes, etc.

A list of equipment, paints, etc. will be provided during the first class to help you get started.
