EN PLEIN AIR

PAINTING

A FRENCH TERM meaning: 

 "in the open air"

 

Learn to paint outdoors this summer in the beauty of the open air of Port Coquitlam.

 

10:30 am - 3:30 pm              $75

includes a drawing demo and painting demo

We will meet at a predetermined location. Once we've set up I will do a composition & sketching demonstration.

You will then practice your drawing skills on location in the spot you choose. Then we will reconvene for a painting demonstration after lunch. While you are painting I will be available for individual consultations up until 3:00 pm. After that you can remain at the location for as long as you wish. 

You will bring all your own supplies including a chair(or two), a portable easel, Painting materials, a lunch, water for drinking and painting with. 

Suitable for all skill levels
however this is not a beginner class and participants who have had some previous experience usually have a more enjoyable time. Contact me for details.

Please note that in the case of rain there will be an option to paint at the Poco Art Studio working from a photo on the tv screen.

 

Poco Art Studio,

#3-1760 McLean Ave, Port Coquitlam

Also, the classes could be cancelled if there are two or less participants. Please let me know by email if you are interested in a class

 

Tammy will also be doing other En Plein Air sessions for people who have had outdoor painting experience. If you are interested in hearing about when they happen please email me or click on this link.
