About The Program

Leave the four walls of the studio and take your canvas outside! For centuries artists have experienced the freedom of painting “en plein air” which is the French expression for “in the open air.” Join us outside at the SCA for your own painting experience in the open air during our Plein-Air Painting camp. Artist and educator Linda Walker will walk campers through the historical practice of painting outside, from drafting a sketch to capturing light. Learn a new technique and build new relationships with our local environments!
