PAINTING THE WORLD AROUND US:
PLEIN AIR PAINTING IN SPRING
MAY 1 – 7, 2016
John C. Campbell Folk School, Brasstown, N. Carolina
What do you love about spring? Have you experienced it in the mountains of North Carolina? The flowers have begun to burst open in joyful colors, the birds are singing, the air is fresh and the world is alive! Would you like to paint it?
Come join us at the peak of spring for a fun class at the John C. Campbell Folk School! It’s a great place to celebrate life, to make new friends, experience all kinds of arts and crafts being created and to relax and try something you have always wanted to do.
I’ll help you capture your chosen subjects on canvas to take home and enjoy for years to come. We will paint outdoors “en plein air” and in the studio, discovering ways you intuitively express your creative voice. We will use simple color palettes and learn to capture the essence of what you love in the world around you in spring, whether flowers, clouds, mountains, trees, the lovely spring landscape or the dew on wet grass (just to name a few….). The choice is yours and I will be there to help!
Any questions? Feel free to ask! Come celebrate spring and enjoy painting it!
We hope to see you there!
