Plein Air Class with Lisa Thoren

Learn the art of landscape painting! A special lesson on how to sketch plein air with Lisa Thoren. Creating outdoors, while working at a social distance, we will discover techniques to learn perspective, composition and values. Includes wine to help your creative inspiration :-). 

This class happened in September, 2020. In just an hour and a half, we learned to see, sketch and paint.  Thank you Lisa! We will welcome Lisa back in June, 2021. Please let us know if you are interested in participating in this class.
