Plein Air for the Young at Art
What a great idea. Plein air painters in Hawaii have created a two-part program to introduce young people (ages 8-18) to the experience of painting outdoors. Entitled Plein Air for the Young at Art, the program includes a classroom session with instruction and demonstrations and, later, a paint-out with supplies provided and with roaming "artist experts" giving guidance and advice. Ten schools are involved in the program, and students who want to participate in the paint-out must submit an application with a teacher's recommendation.
October 25 is the date of the paint-out. There will be a reception at the Cannery Mall where the students' paintings will be displayed and the general public is invited to attend
