En Plein Air Painting with Mel Macvoy

8:45am - 4:00pm

An introduction to Plein Air Painting with artist demos and one on one instruction. You will explore what to look for before beginning a painting, choosing a composition, laying out the composition, blocking it in and recording the most important details of the scene. Plein Air painting is about expressing your impression in a simplified manner in a short amount of time. (because the lighting is constantly changing). It is about engaging with your subject on a more intimate level by learning from painting from real life and immersing yourself in the landscape.

Please note, the lunch hour is independent! You may choose to eat at the Bear Lodge Bistro, or you may bring up a picnic lunch, whatever you prefer!

Be prepared for a light beginner hike!
