Plein Air 101 with Dan Wiemer | Red Wing Arts
Jun 13 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
Are you curious about what Plein air painting is? Join Red Wing Arts and Dan Wiemer on June 13th for a full discussion.
Plein air painting is experiencing painting and drawing in the landscape. The practice goes back for centuries, but was truly made into an art form by the French Impressionists. Their desire to paint light and its changing, ephemeral qualities, coupled with the creation of transportable paint tubes and the box easel—the precursor to the plein air easels of today—allowed artists the freedom to paint “en plein air,” which is the French expression for “in the open air.”
