Kid’s Paint Main .5
June 8 @ 9:00 am - 11:30 amFree
What is Paint Main .5? – Paint Main .5 is an opportunity for young artists ages 12 and under to create a Masterpiece en plein air for .5 (1/2 hour) during the Gloucester Arts Festival . Plein Air is a French term that simply means “painting outdoors” normally on painting easels. Supplies will be provided on site. First come, first served.
Children will experience Plein Air painting in an outdoor environment where they will begin by viewing examples of Plein Air paintings by the Impressionist painters Degas, Monet, Pissarro, and Renoir. Children will learn about foreground, background, the horizon line, and natural light. Each child will use watercolors and oil pastels on watercolor paper. Children will have the option of painting a plein air scene, or flowers in a vase.
Bring your budding young artists to try their hand at Plein Air painting during the Gloucester Arts Festival!
