Chicory Lane Farm in Spring Mills
PLEIN AIR MADE SIMPLE
With Karen Margulis PSA IAPS-MC
Explore the wonderful world of Plein air painting in this three day workshop. Karen will share tips and techniques that will help you have successful and fun Plein air outings with pastels. There will be plenty of demos, exercises and help at your easel. We will begin the workshop with a studio session to give us a great start and then spend the next two days outside (weather permitting). This workshop is an excellent opportunity to learn how to simplify and enjoy the Plein air experience with pastels.
Every participant is sure to find an abundance of painting inspiration at Chicory Lane Farm in Spring Mills. The new barn will serve as our home base while the ecologically diverse site offers vernal pools, grasslands, meadows and forests.
The structure of Karen’s plein air workshops is to spend the first day inside, then the rest of the demos will be on location outside and we will all work outside. Obviously this is subject to change depending on the weather. Workshops run from 9-4 or 5 with an hour break for lunch each day.
There will be a group dinner the first night of the workshop (Friday). Location still to be determined.
