Acrylic Painting in the Leaf
July 8 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm
Join Kristen Treusch who has both a Bachelor of Fine Arts and a Bachelor of Art History degrees as she shares her insight and knowledge of painting techniques. Take this opportunity to try working with acrylic paint on a canvas in a fun and educational way from an experienced artist and educator.
Plein air painting is about painting and drawing outside. The art form has been around for quite a long time but was truly made into an art form by the French Impressionists in the late 1800s. Their desire to paint light and its changing, ephemeral qualities, coupled with the creation of transportable painting equipment artists to capture the emotional and sensory dimensions of a particular landscape at a particular moment in time.
No experience required, just an interest in learning. Spend 2 hours painting at The Leaf at Assiniboine Park in your own Impressionistic style on location of your choosing around the Leaf. You will need to bring a lawn chair to sit in as picnic tables are not available and sun screen.
Supplies are included. Best for 16+ and no spectators, please just enthusiastic artists!
