Plein Air Week June, 2020 
Thank you artists!

Thank you to the artists who came to the Mather Homestead in order to enjoy the grounds and paint, draw, photograph, etc in June, 2020!  We are excited to share some images from the week.  All artwork is currently on display in the new "barn," a.k.a., the Elizabeth W. Chilton Education Center.  Email us to schedule a visit!  

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 and please let us know if you are interested in participating in a class in the future.  In just an hour and a half, we learned to see, sketch and paint.  Thank you Lisa!
