Plein air is the “art of observation”. Members are very privileged to have this opportunity to spend a day at the beach painting “plein air” with Mark. He paints nature with a new freshness and creates incredible beauty through the use of color, light, composition and depth. The basis of his interest in landscape painting stems from his growing up in rural Los Angeles, hiking the Sycamore-lined gullies, and riding on horseback under the snow-capped San Gabriel Mountains.  He studied at Saddleback College, CSUF and CSULB. Learn new techniques and aesthetic observation with Mark on the beautiful beach of Crystal Cove. Recommended for advanced level artists. Bring your lunch.

Want to loosen up and reconnect with (or discover) your innate drawing confidence? This master class has you covered. Through quick, intuitive gesture drawings, you will tap into your eye-hand connection and learn to trust its competence. No fussing over mistakes and erasing over and over. This technique will unblock you, and it can become your most important tool for building strong starting points for more sustained drawings. Carolin believes images tell a story of introspection, exploration and the forces one might encounter along the path to”individuation”. Her intention is to spark contemplation.
