Plein Air Painting Day with Lewis Chapman
Grab your easel (or borrow one from the Arts Center) and meet Lewis at the Appalachian Trail access at Cross Mountain Road for a day of plein air painting.
The group will meet at the parking lot at the Appalachian Trail access, located at the corner of Cross Mountain Rd. and Hwy. 91. at 10 a.m. Then hike about a quarter of a mile on an accessible trail. The trail crosses a large field overlooking Shady Valley featuring distant mountain views, fields, and low wooden barns.
Lewis will discuss composition, lighting, and techniques to indicate detail. All mediums are welcome. Make sure you bring plenty of water, snacks, a large hat or an umbrella for shade as well as a camera or cell phone to capture your scene in case the weather changes. Cost is $10 (or a donation of your choice to the Center for the Arts). Participants are encouraged to submit finished works to the Cultural Heritage Plein Air Event.
