Special Events are suspended at this time due to Covid19. We will reevaluate at the January 2021 board meeting for a date and time to resume.
During the art season, we will schedule special events for an educational or just fun event for our members.
What Is Plein Air?
Plein Air is a term derived from the French phrase 'en plein air,' which literally means 'in the open air.' It's a familiar concept today, but in the late 1800s, thanks to the Industrial Revolution, artists were able to carry small metal paint tubes out of their studios for the first time in all of history. This allowed them to paint on site and record the colors they saw from observation instead of from a drawing or a sketchbook with notes. For the first time they were able to observe, investigate and capture the true colors and effects of sunlight during different times of the day on a particular landscape or subject, and it was revolutionary.
