Plein Air painting is a bit of a tricky thing to swing. Because of changing weather, we have a full refund policy if the weather is too rough to paint. If you have to cancel for any other reason 4 days before the event a full refund will be returned, and anything within 4 days will be a 50% refund. Holding a space until the last couple days prevents me from filling it with another student! 

You can RSVP to hold your spot and send a payment!



Starting at 9:20 join Lauren Carlo for an intermediate/advanced demo until 10 am. Topics include, composition, atmospheric perspective, color temperature shifts, texture and edges.
