Prepare for Plein Air

Techniques for Painting on Location with Jared Cullum!

Online Workshop with Jared Cullum Saturday, April 15, from 12pm–2:15pm Pacific

Join us on Saturday, April 15th at noon Pacific for Prepare for Plein Air with Jared Cullum! Due to the changeability of weather and light, plein air painting can be a difficult test of drafting, paint application, and, most importantly, patience.

This workshop will look at practical methods and exercises to prepare for the season and get in the right mindset for when we’re up against the elements. Through group exercise, Q&A, and demonstration, you will learn about sketching on location, so you’ll be ready with your gear anytime and anywhere.

All levels are welcome!

Saturday, April 15, from 12pm–2:15pm Pacific
