Plein Air

 Definition - In the manner of a 19th-century style of painting outdoors, or with a strong sense of the open air,

that became a central feature of French impressionism.

"the French style of plein-air landscape painting"

Prism- Equus style

We are taking the painting class outside.
And into the horse pasture,
for a Plein Air style painting class like no other.
June 12 at 6pm - 9pm
At New Horizon Ranch
$55 per person 
(rain out date June 23)
This really is an animal lovers dream.
At the ranch there are Llama's, donkeys, sheep,
goats (lots of adorable goats) 
and 60 horses.
Chickens, dogs, cats and a sassy mule.
We will set up our easels and paint in the field with live models as inspiration.
At this class you are not restricted to paint just horses.
Inspiration will be all around you.
Literally all around you the animals are free to wander wherever they like and I am sure they will be very interested in a group of artists taking up temporary residence in their pasture.
All art supplies will be provided.
No previous experience required.
Suitable for ages 12 and up
(Although many of the animals are very friendly - this is not a petting zoo. It is a working ranch)

You are free to paint whichever animal or animals you like - in a variety of easy to learn styles and techniques.  With so many fabulous live models to choose from deciding who to paint will be the hardest part of the class.
