There is nothing like the experience of plein air painting!  Many of the Masters studied outdoor painting, because it forces you to gather information in an immediate manner, dealing with a changing light.  Our Safari will take us to 8 different locations around the beautiful South Shore, and at each location you will choose a view to paint that is all your own.  ALL levels  are welcome - all mediums.  

Participants should have some knowledge of their medium. On rainy days we will find indoor or sheltered locations.  

Join me for this refreshing journey of painting plein air as we hone our skills and sharpen our ability to transform the view before us into art that speaks in our own voice!

About the Instructor: Kelley has been painting and making art for 40 years. She has won numerous awards and loves being a painting instructor.  She was a watercolor painter first, then an oil painter and now has found her joy in the acrylic medium.  Until 3 years ago she was strictly a representational painter, but discovered the world of Intuitive Abstracts and is enthusiastically exploring this exciting method every day.  Kelley loves to travel and paint plein air as well, and has painted in Holland, Canada, numerous times in Mexico as well as across the United States. She will be bringing plein air students to San Miguel de Allende, along with her friend and fellow artist Paula Villanova in February on a painting workshop.  An Art History major at Wheaton College, she fell in love with the actual making of art. Living presently in Providence RI, she is an exhibiting member of the Providence Art Club and a devoted member of the North River Arts Society.
