Join artist and DAC instructor Nancy McTague-Stock for a plein air painting and drawing class at the beautiful Cherry Lawn Park. The tradition of painting outside has a rich history, famed in Connecticut by the Cos Cob and Lyme painting colonies from the 1890's. Come join us and continue the tradition! Nancy will bring her favorite portable mediums: graphite pencil, colored pencil and watercolor for demonstration. The DAC will provide graphite pencil, watercolor, brush and paper. Feel free to bring any additional art supplies. Also, please bring a small folding chair, sunscreen and a bottle of water.
