Painting outdoors (en plein air) is a really enjoyable activity and a wonderful way to improve your painting skills. When you paint outdoors it really makes you focus on the landscape and given the light and weather conditions are always changing, it teaches you to paint quickly.
Plein air painting will help you to loosen up your brush work and help you to improve your understanding of colours and values in the landscape. It’s also very good for the mind, body and spirit as you are getting outside, often into tranquil locations.
This Plein Air Workshop led by professional artist Joseph Casapinta is a wonderful opportunity to experience the beautiful locations around Malta and Gozo whilst improving your painting skills.
Choose to draw with watercolors, ink, pastels, or paint on canvas ‘en plein air’ like the impressionist masters. We visit picturesque coastal bays and gardens.
This course is suitable both for beginners and more advanced students since art groups are kept small to ensure individual attention and guidance.
Tea and Coffee refreshments will be provided throughout the session.
