Plein Air Painting

The deadline for this opportunity has passed.

This summer, step out of your studio to become a plein air artist, striving to capture the moment and the incomparable experience of ‘being there’, in the great outdoors. Through the en plein air workshop series, the Leighton Art Centre invites beginner and experienced artists to come and practice with a variety of mediums and techniques.

In this workshop, join us and our invited artist-instructor Doug Swinton and experience that thrill of painting on location with acrylic and oil paint. Throughout the workshop, you will paint many paintings on location.

Towards the end of the workshop, participants will engage in a small show and tell. Doug will focus on the process of setting up, composition in plein air painting and filtering out all the un-necessaries.

Supplies are not included. Please bring your medium of choice—acrylic, oil and even watercolour supplies!
