Plein Air Painting: Watershed

- $60

This exciting new ACP workshop at the Watershed embraces the great tradition of painting outdoors. Using oils, acrylics, or watercolors, participants will discover the challenge of painting natural light and how it changes over time, explore how color defines forms, learn how to represent natural colors, experiment with brush strokes and create textures. The instructor will offer suggestions to participants individually during the session, then near the end of day, the group will meet to share their work and the day’s painting experience.

The workshop ends with a short Naturalist-led walk on the Watershed Reserve trails. Bring a bag lunch to enjoy while lingering with fellow artists.
