Continuing Education Course



Plein Aire Painting in Gouache with DJ Hall


Derived from the French, en plein aire means “in open air.” This approach to painting is considered one of the best ways to develop an understanding of both color and light. In this special course, artist D.J. Hall introduces students to her gouache painting techniques and secrets for creating intimate realistic plein aire studies. Course also explores use of color, composition, and value. Discussion, demonstration, and critique emphasize a realistic and representational approach to painting the natural landscape. This hands-on course takes place in the field on Southern California beaches, trails, and park locations. Instructor works with students individually to ensure a strong understanding of each medium.

Prerequisite: Drawing or painting experience
