Plein Air Convention moves to San Diego in 2017

I am really excited and looking forward to teaching once again at the Plein Air Convention in April 2017.

Beautiful and sunny San Diego, California will be the next location for the largest gathering of artists in the world and promises to be vibrant and fun for all, whether you are a raw and nervous beginner or a well-seasoned professional. There truly is something for everyone. The Plein Air Convention is a life-changing event for most to be immersed in such a stimulating and growth-oriented culture of artists that are so supportive and friendly.

Watermedia for Beginners

I have the honour of presenting on Day One to the WATERMEDIA NEWBIES!!! This is so exciting for me as I love helping beginners more than anything. They gain so much from all the lessons, demonstrations, presentations as well as painting in the field alongside their heroes and in a unique atmosphere where they are free to ask for help and advice at any time!

Gear and supplies available to purchase onsite

I love that everything they could possibly need in the way of gear and supplies is available onsite in the exhibitors hall so they don’t have to make a huge investment before they arrive or find out that they brought the wrong items. The suppliers are also giving big discounts to attendees and have special offers on brushes, paints, supports, easels, canvas, paper, sketchbooks, you name it. If you have ever wondered if this is for you or questioned if you are ‘ready’ or not to attend something as big as this, I want to reassure you. It is an absolutely AMAZING experience that you will gain so much from and come away with lots of incredible knowledge and experiences!

Many of my students have heard me rave on about my adventures at the Plein Air Conventions and have taken the plunge and LOVED IT!! I think many of us after attending, no matter what level of experience or level, are overwhelmed and humbled by the wealth of knowledge and generosity of spirit the artists are all sharing with one another. It is such a life-affirming event to know that we all face similar problems and have some great tips and techniques to share about how to manage those challenges.

You are very likely to meet someone on a similar part of the artistic journey, as we are all on this path but at different stages~ it is such a fun time together and the amount of learning and growth is remarkable.

I can’t wait to share with the newbies, whether they are doing watercolour, acrylic, or water-soluble oils (anything that washes up in soap and water!)~ I have so many tips and techniques, goodies and gear to show and share with you all!!

Please come along and be prepared to be AMAZED at what you will see and do together with your new-found friends and colleagues! Don’t delay as the bookings are filling fast, here is the link to register: 6th Annual Plein Air Convention and Expo (PACE 2017)
