Plein Air - a French term for those who paint outdoors, has become a popular event to attend and to purchase original works of art from the local area. It is a tremendous opportunity to watch artists at work and for 'budding' artists to learn techniques and materials used by other artists. Artists of all levels and ages are encouraged to participate.
