Drawing and Painting II students learned about Plein Air Painting (outdoor painting) from visiting artist Ann Larsen. Students learned how the original Hudson River School painters painted on location to accurately depict what they were seeing in nature. Students gathered outside the art wing to paint the towering pine trees. Larsen shared her wealth of knowledge about oil painting. The students were provided oil paints by art teacher and painter Lisa David. The students loved the experience and look forward to resuming the Plein Air club next year. For more information about plein air painting or joining the club, contact davilisa@shenschools.org.
