Plein Air Drawing Session - Free

 

Join Pennsylvania College of Art & Design's Center for Creative Exploration artists and instructors, Nichole Madonna and Beth Hacker, for an intergenerational plein air drawing session. Learn how to utilize a viewfinder for identifying your composition, how to block in light and shadow, and an opportunity to experiment with various drawing media.

A limited number of easels and stools will be available, so participants are encouraged to bring their own chairs. This free event does not require registration; it is first-come, first-served. Participants must wear masks when having close interaction with students and/or instructors, and must be physically-distanced while working.
