Fall Color Palette – Oil Painting in Plein-air

Learn the importance of complementary colors mixed to create the gorgeous hues of fall. Through daily demonstrations in the studio as well as working ‘en plein air’ on the beautiful Folk School grounds, learn new painting methods and mastery of materials. We will be working with traditional oils and mediums. Engage in the natural surroundings of a colorful season with your hat, walking shoes, and tote in tow.
