WHAT: 2021 Annual Casa Grande Plein Air Painting Event, hosted by the Casa Grande Arts and Humanities Commission
What is Plein Air?
The event is open to any artist who paints using the Plein Air technique in oil, watercolor, acrylic, or pastel. Plein Air (open-air) paintings are executed outdoors from real life, as opposed to being painted from photographs in a studio. Both artist and subject must be outdoors, and photographs are NOT used.
Contemporary Plein air artists capture moments in time that reflect the ever-changing colors, light and shadows, temperature, and shifting elements. This art form requires stamina, focus, and the ability to be completely absorbed in the work regardless of what Mother Nature is throwing at them.
WHEN: March 13, 2021
