Maine Plein Air Oil Painting


with Christopher Reed

Calendar May 9, 2019 at 6 pm, runs for 5 weeks

Part of the Beginner Mindfulness Art Series

Spend the first two classes inside the studio learning foundations and practicing technical skills for outdoor landscape painting. Learn to navigate oil’s challenges and take advantage of the benefits: brighter colors, slower dry time, ease in blending, minimized color change through drying process, etc. Meet outdoors off-site for the last three classes; locations tbd may include Kettle Cove, Scarborough Marsh and/or Portland Headlight. Supply list provided once class determined to run. 

Mindfulness Art Series: Students will explore basic foundations and technical skills within a mindfulness-based atmosphere. The objective will be to gradually overcome inhibitions and perfectionism, free oneself from judgment, and allow one’s inner artist to unfold naturally - in order to create in the most relaxed, soulful and intuitive ways. No experience required, just curiosity and willingness to tap into unchartered creative territory. Those with experience welcome to come build upon previous skills. Chris graduated from Bowdoin College with a BA in Visual Arts. He’s a painter, exhibitor, and art teacher inspired by the synthesis of nature, the evolving play of light, and each artist’s unique, mindful expression of feelings and interpretation; website:
