Mon. June 13, 2022 – Plein Air Workshop, Kennebunk, ME

PLEIN AIR PREPAREDNESS – Local Artists Offer Advice For Outdoor Painting

The Bauman Family Gallery of the Brickstore Museum, 4 Dane Street, Kennebunk (In the program center behind the museum)

The Art Guild of the Kennebunks (the Guild) has enlisted juried member and professional artist, Susan E. Hanna, to inspire a discussion with other plein air artists. Painting en plein air (“in the full air”) has become more popular with the advent of the pandemic. Artists and others have flocked to scenic spots for enjoyment and to create.

At this workshop, artists from various mediums will share what equipment, techniques, and supplies they use when painting outdoors. The format will include anecdotes as well as casual remarks by the panel members followed by an open discussion with those in attendance. Attendees will be encouraged to share their own experiences and ask questions about the pitfalls and pleasures of painting en plein air.

Kennebunk Savings has graciously sponsored Guild Programs this year, allowing this workshop and other events.  The Guild hopes that this workshop will encourage artists to understand the process of painting en plein air and to try it themselves. This program is made possible with the generous support of Kennebunk Savings.

Hours: 2 pm to 4 pm
