Plein Air Kids! Painting Outside with Watercolours

September 19, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm


SOLD OUT!  This class is all about painting in the great outdoors! We will begin inside in the classroom with a short lesson covering the fundamentals of working outside including how to choose a subject, composition and how to paint some simple textures. Then we head outside, rain or shine, to the yard at the Art Centre, set up our easels and create a watercolour painting en plein air!

Led by artist and ECFTA Arts Educator Eileen MacArthur.

Please come dressed for the weather.

Ages 6-12


Max 9 participants.  **We have implemented COVID-19 safety protocols within our building and in our workshop spaces.  This is an outdoor workshop, participants will be set up 6 feet apart.  For more information about our workshop safety procedures, please click here.
