En plein air, or plein air painting, is the act of painting outdoors. On Saturday, September 3rd from 11am to 3pm, Fort Halifax Park is partnering with Wheel of Light Studio to invite new and experienced artists to register for an afternoon of painting outside at Fort Halifax Park. During this event, curious artists will have the option to enjoy plein air instruction and demonstration from artist and educator Carrie Feidt. Once participants are ready, they are then free to explore the park and set up for an afternoon of painting or drawing their selected scene(s). After painting, artists will then be invited to display their work within a central location of the park and chat about their experiences over some light refreshments. Artists are welcome to sell their work on site if they choose to do so, or take it home at the end of the day. An album of the paintings created will also be shared to Facebook for viewing and sales. We will send an email with timed details as the participants register.
Artists are encouraged to bring their own supplies, but a limited amount of supplies will be available for ones that need to borrow some.
Spectators are welcome!
Bookings are closed for this event.
