The colors of fall are arriving soon! Join MAD Art’s Plein Air classes and capture them on canvas. Plein air refers to the type of painting done “in the open air”.  With an easel and paints in tow, and an appealing location and subject, the artist works quickly to capture the scene. Choose to work in your preferred medium. All skill levels are welcome and no previous experience is necessary. For additional information please call Joyce at 228-2028.
