About the Class
Plein Air is, literally, sketching or painting in the ‘open air’. A tried and true tradition of many landscape and portrait painters throughout history, Plein Air painting means that you can capture the atmosphere, colour, essence and light of a landscape or vista right in the moment.
Join artist, gardener, lover of nature Sarah in a spontaneous celebration of artistic joie de vivre! No experience is necessary. Explore your creative side and take in the spectacular landscape of Killalea – with rolling green, sea grasses, native flora, sparkling ocean and wide open sky. An artists’ dream.
This skill can help you develop a habit of taking everything you need in your pocket, and when you find yourself on a hillside? Sitting down to draw/sketch/paint.
This class is part of Sculptures at Killalea, a week long event and sculpture exhibition on the Killalea Park estate in Shellharbour.
Sarah has been observing landscapes, both urban and rural through drawing in situ for the better part of 25 years. Her skills were refined at TAFE over 4 years and the rest is pure enthusiasm! Sarah is also a part of the family run Pope’s produce; a market garden in Woonona that’s chemical free and based on permaculture principles.
