What you'll do

We meet at the Moseley Fine Art Studio and Gallery on Main Street in Cambria at a select time in the morning or afternoon/eve - There is an indoor tour of the gallery (15 min) and I give a 15 min introduction to Plain Air painting - I initially supply the materials (unless the guests are previously equipped). At this point I make sure everyone has either already had something to eat and if not we take a break to go next door or anywhere nearby for drinks, food or snacks. We then caravan to a local spot to paint - some of the most beautiful beaches and california country scenes are all right here - (literally less than 1/2 mile from the gallery) - The painting session will last 2 or so hours - We always initially go to spots where there are public restrooms nearby and benches for people to take breaks and relax. Then we have a quick discussion and critique of the work that lasts about 15 minutes. The whole experience lasts about 3 to 3 1/2 hours, but often guests like to mingle further or go out for coffee after and are welcome to. After this initial outing guests are welcome to sign up for instruction if they choose, or sign up for a "paint-out" without instruction.

John

People often ask me how long I've been an artist and I always tell them for as long as I can remember! (my first memory is a day I spent out in nature with my father then came home and excitedly did my best to paint what I saw) I've owned and operated my own studio-galleries, in San Diego and Santa Fe, NM before coming to Cambria - I've had shows of my work in Los Angeles, New York, Santa Fe, and have collectors worldwide from South America, Africa, Europe and Australia. Plein Air outings are a great combination of several things I do being an artist, a teacher and enjoying the great outdoors
