AGTV’s Plein Air group is open to anyone who likes to paint, sketch, or use pastels outside. Artists will work independently using their own materials. Locations will be within 30 minutes and will have parking, bathrooms and shade. Please bring water and perhaps a snack or light lunch.
This is an opportunity to meet with others while capturing the beauty of our surrounding area and to share creative ideas.
Initially the group will meet in the mornings on Thursdays, depending on the weather forecast. You will be notified by Mary directly once you sign up.
Art journaling is a mixed media art opportunity. Have fun with others while learning to play in paint, collage, and fun mixed media techniques.
In this class we try new techniques with paints, pens, papers, stencils and other tools. We use an art journal as a place to capture these new techniques so you will be able to refer back to them in the future. The goal is not to create a finished piece of art, but rather have a place to experiment and try new techniques. There is no right or wrong way to do this. We share ideas, paint, talk and relax. This class is for newbies to advanced artists because it will make you happy.
The class supply list:
Acrylic paints and brushes
Markers and pens of your choice which might include markers, paint pens and gel pens
Art journal* with mixed media or acrylic paper (Mixed media paper will work too)
Optionally: Stencils, stamps & handmade or scrapbooking papers to cut up
Bring water container and paper towels, apron recommended
*We recommend using an art journal as a place to try new things and remember what you have done, but acrylic or mixed media paper will work too. Look for art journals specifically for painting by Canson, Grumbacher, Strathmore etc with the heavier weight paper ( 90# or 140#) which are widely available at major retailers.
Covid protocol: AGTV recommends wearing a face mask when social distancing isn’t possible.
