Plein Air Painting: Beyond Monet
Many people are aware that Monet painted out-of-doors, yet understand very little about the process and art historical context of his style of painting. Attendees will dive deeper into the history and process of plein air painting, and learn about the modern resurgence of this movement.
The conversation will be facilitated by fine artist Maggie Capettini as she presents a history of plein air painting and shares her modern tools and equipment, as well as, some of her completed paintings. Light refreshments will be served.
Space is limted! Please RSVP using the following link:
