Plein Air Drawing and Painting with Leigh Niland or Lauren Watrous

Now is the perfect time to get outdoors and meet up with fellow creatives while painting in the landscape. Each week, we will meet at a new location in Brattleboro along the Connecticut River and local beauty spots. Each location will be chosen for the ability to work safely socially distanced, such as marked parking spaces or side-walk chalked containment zones that each participant designates for themselves. Feel free to wander a little wider! Our goals, beyond pure enjoyment in nature, are learning materials, color mixing, developing a good palette, and making several paintings. This is a taught class with instruction offered, but also easily adaptable for those who prefer more independent work. Watercolor painters and drawers are also welcomed.

The format of the sessions is a meet and greet gathering at 10 am at the set location with masks/ face coverings and to observe 6' social distancing. Materials are available to all who attend including easels, boards, paper, and canvases. Please notify in advance if you would like to use specific materials so that we can be sure to pack them along. Given the short timing of the session, we focus on getting down to work expediently and having a round up meeting to look at the works sound 12-12:15 according to group consensus.  The facilitator will circulate during the session to meet individually with you.  Mostly, it's just a great morning out together painting in a beautiful place!

Use of your own supplies is recommended; if you need to borrow any materials make arrangements with the school.

$200 for 5 classes or $45 drop in fee per class
