Placerville Event: Plein Air Paint-Out at Wakamatsu Farm

Saturdays, March 2nd, April 20th & May 18th 8:30am-12pm

Join artist David Yapp for a time of plein air painting at Wakamatsu Farm. "En plein air" is a French term meaning “in the open air” and refers to painting outdoors (normally a landscape or townscape) on location. This was a very popular approach of the French Impressionist painters, who incorporated the natural light, color, and movement of the outdoors into their paintings.

Bring your own paints and equipment for a time of self-guided painting. You supply all your own materials and equipment (easel, canvas, oils, acrylics, watercolors, etc.), choose your subject, and enjoy the camaraderie of painting outdoors with other artists. Instruction not provided. We encourage meeting together for picnic lunch after the session.

Rain cancels. All painting levels welcome. Responsible children 12+ welcome (w/adult supervision). Meeting location Gold Hill/Placerville area. Cost: $15/members, $20/non-members. A detailed email will be sent once you register online.
