Catamount Arts Classes

Plein Air Painting (adults and high school students)

Thursdays, July 6-27, 9:30-12:30

Catamount Arts Center
115 Eastern Ave.
St. Johnsbury, VT

Instructor: Margaret Wiseheart Anderson

Students will discover the many joys of plein air painting (painting outdoors) in this experiential class. The series will start indoors then move outside to paint from life using water soluble oil paints. Each session will include a demonstration painting on location for students to follow along, followed by painting on your own. Learning to be comfortable with the equipment and materials will make painting outdoors as pleasurable as a walk in the park! Students will be invited to display their work at St. Johnsbury’s Final Friday celebration on July 28.

Class fee: $120 ($108 for Catamount Arts members and high school students), plus a $50 materials fee (if you prefer to bring your own paints, brushes, canvases, etc., please let us know).

Scholarship funds are available for high school students; please call Anne at 802-748-2600 ext. 109 for details.

Space is limited to 8 students, and registration closes on July 5.

Parents of high school students under age 18: Please complete an enrollment form HERE after paying for the workshop.

Easels will be provided, or you can bring your own. Please bring a sketchbook and pencils, a lunch, plenty of water, sunscreen, a hat, and bug spray.
