Monet, Renoir and Cézanne were among many artists who made the outdoors their studio. The French expression, en plein air, meaning “in the open air” refers to the act of painting outdoors. This allows artists to capture the natural light, movement and color in their work.
We are excited to offer our plein air art camp again this summer, last summer was such a success that we are again offering this unique and engaging art experience to your children. We will be moving our high quality standards for art education outdoors. students will work in the fresh air, sunshine and amongst nature! They will have the opportunity to engage with peers and get exercise while learning and creating art.
