Plein Air Watercolor Painting

October 14, 2017 @ 12:00 pm

- Free

How do artists work? Many watercolor landscape artists paint inside a studio, but plein air artists paint landscapes outside. En plein air means äóìin the open airäó in French. The Utah Museum of Fine Arts is working with the Silver Reef Museum in Leeds to host a free family day learning about how plein air artists work. Come at your leisure to see plein air artists working, and then try your own hand at watercolor painting – getting inspiration from the landscape outside. Free family activity conducted by the Education Curators from the Utah Museum of Fine Art between 1:00-3:00pm. See Dixie Watercolor Society plein air artists at work from 12:00-4:00pm. Event is free but registration is appreciated – sign up at http://tinyurl.com/WashingtonCountyWorks
