Plein Air

Come try painting or drawing en plein air with the Burnside Painting Group!

Like to do some sketching or painting outdoors? Why not join the Plein Air group? Plein air outings are organised to take advantage of favourable weather. No restrictions, no absolutes. Simply sit and sketch or create an easel extravaganza!

  • Plein air outings every few weeks (Tuesdays – Fridays). 
  • Venues emailed a few days prior. 
  • No cost for Members 
  • Inclusive – all levels, all media

Positives: fresh air, enjoying nature, relaxing, engaging the senses, social contact, discovering new places 

Benefits: sharpening technical skills, learning to ‘see the light’, learning to loosen up and paint instinctively, capturing the ‘essence of place’.
