Painting in the Dark! Plein Air at Night with Eileen MacArthur

September 19, 2020 @ 8:00 pm - 10:30 pm


How about this for a Saturday night? This is plein air in the dark!

We will be working outside with watercolour and brush pen, but with the added twist of seeing the landscape and our palettes, limited by the lack of light. We won’t really know what the paintings looks like until the end of the evening, when we head back inside and take a look in the light of the classroom.

Artists are required to bring their own sketchbooks.  A $10 kit fee is payable to the instructor at the start of class.

Please meet at the Elora Centre for the Arts to sign in and then we will head out at dusk.  Participants will be required to maintain social distancing and sign a waiver form.  For more information about our safety policies in place, please click here.

Led by artist Eileen MacArthur

Ages 16+

$40 per person, plus HST

Max 8 participants.
