Sound Garden Plein Air Painting Workshop – Wednesday, June 15, 2022 (1 – 5 PM) Free
After a short guided nature and history walk through the Sound Garden trail, artist and LOLA Marketing and Communications Coordinator McCall Hocking will lead painters through a Plein Air painting experience. Plein Air is painting the surrounding landscape while outdoors, which gives the painter a better understanding of the changing light and color. Enjoy nature while learning the basics of Plein Air, mixing paint colors, and applying paint with brushes and palette knives. Water-soluble Oil Paints will be used, though wearing old painting clothes is highly recommended, as well as a lawn chair if you’d like to sit. Open to all abilities, limited number of spots available.
*will be held under the Pavilion if the weather is bad.
- LOLA Arts has lifted its mask requirement for in-person events and classes effective May 23rd, 2022. LOLA visitors and students who want to wear a mask are more than welcome to do so. Moving forward, any mask or COVID-19 precaution policies or changes to current policies will align with the CDC recommendations based on COVID-19 community levels.
