Popularized by French Impressionists in the mid-1800s, “plein air painting” encourages the artist to think beyond the studio by going outside to paint nature scenes. Impressionists, like Vincent van Gogh and Renoir, took advantage of the liberties made possible by plein air— unlike academic, studio settings with a fixed scene, there is no predetermined look of a plein air painting. Get some air of your own during The Art Supply Depo’s Plein Air Painting Workshops, held on the third Saturday of every month, May through September. Instructor Aaron Pickens will lead these workshops, held at off-site locations decided 3-4 days prior to the event. Each class will run from 9am-2pm and students are required to register for each date individually. Please see online for additional information.
