Save Two Years of Struggle

See the world in a whole new way, like a plein air painter!

Calling aspiring plein air painters of all levels who have never painted outdoors or are fairly new to it!

Join us for this beginner session, a hands-on class that sets you up to be ready to paint at the Plein Air Convention and speeds up your progress in becoming a plein air painter. This optional pre-convention session is not a lecture — it is highly interactive and filled with unique exercises. You’ll come away with tons of inspiration and a wealth of new skills and techniques. We’ll explain the differences, advantages, and disadvantages of oil, watercolor, pastel, and acrylic and show you how to use them. In fact, we’re bringing in top experts in each medium to teach these sessions. Bring your sketchbook for the exercises.

But wait, there’s even more! Not only will you get to experience this full day course before the convention actually begins, your instructors are going to partner with you all throughout the week!

This session is indoors and will run from 8am to 2:45pm on April 24. You’ll want to arrive the night before so you’re fresh and ready for this course. Must be a registered attendee of the main PACE convention to attend. Please note that this course overlaps with the Pre-Convention Workshop with Joseph Zbukvic.
