Artists to paint in the great outdoors in plein air workshop

Artists can learn just how enjoyable it can be to paint in the open air in a beautiful setting

Artists can learn just how enjoyable it can be to paint in the open air in a beautiful setting by taking part in a Plein Air Painting Workshop presented by the Campbell River Art Gallery Saturday, July 21.

Instructional team Jill Paris Rody and Perrin Sparks, both renowned local artists, will share their wealth of knowledge and experience with participants in the workshop, which takes place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in a stunning Black Creek garden. Artists can paint one or more pieces in their choice of medium. Painting outside, or in ‘plein air’ can make some artists nervous, but Rody and Sparks want to coach artists over the rough patches, so they can learn to paint outdoors with ease. The cost for is $48 plus gallery members and $58 for non-members.
