En plein air painting is the practice of painting outdoors, capturing the beauty of nature in its natural light and atmosphere. It is a way to connect with the environment and create art that is unique and personal. By painting outdoors, you can capture the changing light, the movement of the wind, and the ever-changing colours of the sky. En plein air painting is a way to capture the beauty of the scenes around us and create something that is truly special.  So sign up and join us for this exciting creative day.
