Plein Air

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

Unfortunately our Plein Air sessions are currently in recess. However if you have a passion for Plein Air painting and would like to lead or coordinate Plein Air outings please contact The President at to discuss.

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’.

Want to come along?

Contact The President at

Sessions are weather dependent.
