Plein Air Painting in the Gardens

Inspired by the popular 19th century French tradition of painting in the open air (“en plein air”), this new class taught by renowned artist Ray Brown will feature the spring splendor of Morven's beautiful garden.  

Participants will discover the quality of natural light (and how it changes during the session), explore how color can define forms, learn how to represent natural colors, and experiment with brush strokes and creating textures.  Instruction is geared toward beginner/intermediate skill levels but all levels welcome.

Please bring your own easel, painting supplies, sunscreen, rags, brushes and canvas to class For more detailed suggestions on supplies, email  Registration exclusively through Arts Council of Princeton.
