Plein Air Down Under – Student WorkshopPosted in The Arts on Monday, 23 September, 2019
MCC students Andreana Hilary Nath, Mackenzie Constantine and Maya Masniak spent Saturday on Mandurah Foreshore with award winning plein air painter Leon Holmes, who facilitated a workshop for a select group of local youth artists. Students learnt the fundamentals of tone, perspective and colour theory when painting in the outdoors; skills that will help contribute to their own art practice.
It was a beautiful day to paint down at the foreshore and we had lots of people stop and watch.
This workshop was a prelude to the Plein Air Down Under Festival that will be held over the coming long weekend by the Mandurah artists group. All ages are invited to register and paint at the festival weekend for fun, experience and prizes.
