2012 CASA GRANDE PLEIN AIR PAINTING EVENT
NOTE: FEES HAVE BEEN WAIVED.
WHAT: 2012 Casa Grande Plein Air Painting Event, sponsored by the City of Casa Grande Arts & Humanities Commission. The event is open to any artist who paints using the Plein Air technique in oil, watercolor, acrylic, or pastel. Plein Air (open air) paintings are executed outdoors from real life, as opposed to being painted from photographs in a studio. Both painter and subject must be outdoors, and photographs are NOT used. Contemporary plein air artists capture moments in time that reflect the ever-changing colors, light and shadows, temperature and shifting elements. This art form requires stamina, focus and the ability to be completely absorbed in the work regardless of what Mother Nature is throwing at them.
WHEN: Saturday, February 11, 2012, 8:00 a.m. - 3:30 p.m. This date has been chosen to coincide with other City Centennial Celebrations events being held throughout the community.
WHERE: In Beautiful Casa Grande, Arizona. This event is hosted by the Casa Grande Arts & Humanities Commission.
