In Plein Site: A Plein Air Event

Saturday, May 18, 2019

Plein Air painting is about leaving the studio and painting and drawing in the outdoors. The practice dates back centuries but was made into an art form by the French impressionists. The event on May 18th is open to all artists. Participants will bring their own paints, easel, and canvases. Artists gather at the Suffolk Center from 8:00-8:30 a.m. for coffee and sign in and then they will disperse to begin painting. Registration required.

***WE RECOMMEND GOING TO THE INFORMATIONAL MEETING BEFORE ATTENDING THE MAIN EVENT***
