Open Air Watercolor Painting with Ronna Fujisawa

This is an in-person art class for intermediate and ambitious beginners.

One of the best ways to truly see and understand the beauty of the landscape is to paint outside (plein air). During this workshop, we will head out to Sauvie Island to paint onsite: the beautiful open landscape, bodies of water, and ever-changing skies. Learn the basics of how to set up outdoors, how to simplify compositions, mixing colors, and expressive brush strokes.

Come prepared with all your painting gear and get ready for some fun adventure watercolor painting.

Limited to 10 participants.
