Friday Mornings 8:30 AM – 12:30 PM

Contact Chris Kling for details:, or call 772-678-6949 (gallery), or 772-285-7826 (cell).

Plein Air is the practice of painting outside in the “Open or Fresh Air”.  We will be outside on location to view our subjects in real time.  Chris will give daily demonstrations and then circulate to give all students advice and encouragement as they endeavor to create their paintings.  She will teach to the level of the student, beginner or more advanced. Among the topics that will be taught will be composition and design, values, color mixing, color temperature, and edges.  In case of rain, we will meet in the studio and work from photographs or still life.
