Plein Air Painting

ID : 5005   
« back to classes page

In this outdoor painting class at the Indian Valley Organic Farm & Garden, we will learn about value, color mixing and perspective, and apply these basics to capturing the landscape around us. Through exercises, demos, and completing two or three paintings on their own, students will come away with a deeper understanding of what it means to paint in the outdoors. Instruction will be based on oil painting, but students may use water-based paints if they prefer. Participants must have access to a plein air easel. A materials list will be emailed a week before the first class.

The Indian Valley Organic Farm & Garden (IVOF&G) is an operating organic farm on 5 acres, with relatively flat terrain. The farm is host to many animals, including raccoons, deer, gophers, mice, rattlesnakes, and more. Given the dynamic nature of this outdoor space, all students must sign a liability waiver prior to participating in any class experience at the farm. Please wear pants, closed-toed shoes, and sun protection at all times when on site at the IVOF&G.
