Published July 11, 2016

ARC is pleased to welcome Masters of Plein Air Academy® as an ARC Approved™ Atelier specifically for Plein Air paintings.

Santa Fe River with Water
by Edward Duarde
The modern plein air process is a testament to the artist's skills, including the abilities to observe, measure, draw, compose, simplify, condense and render a believable, representational work of art, on site, within two or three hours. Like anything else it is next to impossible to simplify and condense without thoroughly understanding what students are simplifying and condensing. Plein air artwork has advanced significantly since the days when such works were considered mere field studies. Plein air paintings, as rendered today, are complete works of art in themselves. Masters of Plein Air Academy® is a private institution devoted to the special genre of Plein Air Painting.
