We will make a folded paper Accordion Book, A GIANT Cardboard Scrapbook, Binder Ring Book, and a Pocket-sized Leather journal.

Campers will need waterproof shoes as we will probably be dipping our toes in shallow water to collect brilliant treasures!

Five Sunday Mornings - May 21st and 28th, June 4th, 11th, (Skip the 18th Farthers Day) and 25th Plein Air painting refers to that which is done on site, out of doors, since it is challenging to recreate natural light situations in a studio setting. As a class, we will meet once a week for five weeks, at a prearranged location TBA, where we will separately and collectively investigate strategies for painting natural settings, including class discussion on color mixing, application, methods and materials.
