Plein Air Painting Class
June 8, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm
Paint plein air on picturesque Mackinac Island with the guidance of renowned local artist Maeve Croghan. Students will work outdoors in acrylic, oil or watercolor on canvas capturing Mackinac’s striking light and hues. Discover your voice while exploring how the use of color, shapes, and value contribute to making an expressive painting. Workshops will be held in some of Maeve’s favorite plein air painting spots. Maeve will demonstrate plein air techniques, explain her methods of working outdoors, and give guidance to each painter throughout the session as they paint their subject. Maeve’s easy and encouraging teaching style gives each student confidence to successfully begin and work through their paintings, producing a lovely ‘Mackinac’ painting.
All levels of painters are welcome!
