Artist Philip Frey to lead a Plein Air Painting Class at Woodlawn

Ellsworth -

ELLSWORTH, Maine — Paint with professional artist Philip Frey in an all-day plein air painting workshop from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, July 30, at Woodlawn Museum.

Plein air painting comes from the French expression meaning ‘in the open air’ which describes the art of painting outdoors.

In Philip Frey’s plein air painting workshop, the morning and afternoon sessions will consist of painting outdoors on location with a focus on composition, color palette choices, brush work as well as demonstrations and individual instruction by the artist. Participants can bring their choice of oil or acrylic. A supply list to bring will be provided upon registration. Participants should come prepared for the summer Maine weather and bring a bag lunch. In case of inclement weather, the workshop will be held in Woodlawn’s barns. The fee is $125 for Woodlawn members and $135 for non-members. As space is limited, pre-registration is required by calling 667-8671 or emailing events@woodlawnmuseum.org.
