Happy Spring Break!

Hello Artists!

I hope everyone will enjoy the great weather while we are on Spring Break in New Hanover County. Get outside and try out Plein Air Painting. Plein air, a French word, literally translates as ‘open air’, and is defined as painting or drawing done outside, in the open air. The equivalent term in Italian would be alfresco. These works were taken directly from nature, and infused with a feeling of the open air. My favorite is watercolors, but tempera or even pastels are wonderful to create pictures with green back in the trees and all the colors of the blooming flowers.

See you next week!

Ms. Jennie
