en Plein Air

"En Plein Air" is a French expression that means “in the open air.” It is used by artists to describe the art of outdoor painting, capturing landscapes and views in natural light.

Master artists like Cezanne, Van Gogh, and Monet created their work out in the field and observed the world around them as they painted. We will take a walk in their shoes as we learn the ins and outs of painting from life outside.
