Plein Air is an intensive visual arts program concentrating on watercolor painting related to the landscape. This study consists of several parts. In the first half of the quarter, students will learn the basics of watercolor painting processes in studio through assignments to gain proficiency in the media. They will view art works of other artists working in this media through seminars about images, followed by discussion. Students will research and present to the program an artist who works on concepts related to the land. In the second half of the quarter we will paint directly from the landscape to create a body of work.
