Details for "Edward Abela Plein Air October 11"

Plein Air Painting with Edward Abela  October 11

 

 Abela Plein Air 2

Abela Plein Air Unionville

Edward Abela has been a plein air painter for many years, travelling around with his French easel or sketchbook to capture diverse scenery in different locations. For those of you who have kept away from the fun and challenge of plein air, Edward will walk you through some easy steps to facilitate your encounter with nature. Experienced plein air artists will also enjoy the opportunity to consider new approaches. Weather permitting, we will go to a convenient outdoor Markham location. In case of rain, we can use the covered area outside. 

 

 

The group will meet outside the museum entrance at the car park (16th Ave /main Street Markham) at noon . As the workshop will be starting at noon, it will end at 5 pm.
