Description

Paint What You See - "Plein-Air" Painting with Jim Pescott

Tuesday, August 15th from 10am -2pm

Spend the day painting among the trees and let the landscape speak to you. This "Plein Air" (outdoor) painting workshop in Fish Creek Provincial Park will have you experiment with a unique painting technique called "pointillism" where images are created through the use of many tiny, colorful dots. This class is perfect for any skill level of painter, from beginner to experienced; you are invited to try this new technique or simply paint as you see fit!

**Please note that this class is intended to take place outdoors, however if the weather does not cooperate, it will be held indoors at the Fish Creek Environmental Learning Centre

Artist Jim Pescott paints Alberta landscapes and his work has been exhibited internationally. His unique painting style is meditative and explores how everything on our Earth is connected.

(If you would like to speak with Jim to see if this course is a good fit for you, or for questions related to the supplies you'll need, you can email her directly at jimpescottartist@gmail.com). For any other class inquiries, please contact the event organizer.
