A Plein Air Art Trip is another way of saying, "Hey! Let's go create art outside!"
I believe it is vital to learn about art (and many other subjects) through nature. There is truly nothing like creating while surrounded by beautiful creation.
These trips are held once a month, weather permitting, and are open to ages 6+. Younger siblings are welcome to tag along!
If you would like a private trip for your group, contact me and let's make a plan!
