Plein Air Painting Workshop (For Beginners to Intermediate)


En plein air is a French expression which means “in the open air,”
and is particularly used to describe the act of painting outdoors. In
this unique class, you will learn to paint with an emphasis on “perspective”
surrounded by the inspiration of the architecture and beauty of
the University of South Carolina Columbia campus. 

Areas of discussion:

We will focus on paintings/drawings of

buildings, fountains, gates, door entrances
and other architectural details.

We will also work with composition and how it relates

to the vegetation/foliage on campus.

A suggested materials list will be sent to participating artist

before the start of workshop.

*Open to Beginners. Price does not include supplies.
