En Plein Air with the Ontario Plein Air Society
Sunday, August 24, 9 am to 5 pm
Members of the Ontario Plein Air Society (OPAS) will set up their easels on the McMichael grounds. Admire their work in progress and vote for your favourite painting at the end of the day or try your skills in this friendly competition. Bring your easel and painting materials, register with OPAS on-site between 9 and 9:30 am, and choose your vantage point. For those who would like an introduction to en plein air techniques—adults and children alike—there will be outdoor sketching activities at 12:30 and 2:00 pm. There will also be a special pastel demonstration at 2 pm with artist and art instructor, Margaret Ferraro.
