Plein air* painting materials and equipment

FREE DEMO: Saturday April 2nd, 11:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.
Plein air* painting materials and equipment with Matt Hopper
In like a Lion, out like a Lamb. Though March may not be Plein Air friendly, April is an artists’ blank canvas. With new beginnings of the Spring season, it’s time to dust off those portable easels and get outside. Join Holbein Artist Educator Matt Hopper for a two hour informational seminar on everything an artist needs to take their artwork out of the studio and into the fresh air.

*Plein air: En plein air (French pronunciation: [ɑ̃ plɛˈnɛʁ]) is a French expression which means "in the open air", and is particularly used to describe the act of painting outdoors.

Speaking of Plein air, have you heard about the Plein Air Festival being held this July 23rd in Jericho? Pre-registration deadline for artists is March 15th. If you are intrested in this exciting event, contact Barbara Greene at or (802) 899-2974Full description is at Vermont Art Zine.
