Second Annual Plein Air Convention and Expo

April 2, 2013

Next week several ARC Masters and a faculty of over 70 instructors and speakers will converge at the Monterey, CA Conference Center for the Plein Air Convention from PleinAir magazine. ARC Masters™ include James Gurney, Erik Koeppel, and Jeremy Lipking. According to Eric Rhoads, Chairman of Streamline publishing (Plein Air and Fine Art Connoisseur), "Everything we do is about elevating people to the next level through education. Historically most academic painters required plein air study as an important part of the process for all painting, whether landscape or figurative. It's still an important part of the Russian and Chinese curriculum and very much a part of many of today's major ateliers." The convention is primarly focused on plein air painting though there will be figurative demos from Jeremy Lipking, Tony Pro, Alexey Steele, Michelle Dunaway and Alexandria Tyng. Instructors do on stage demos with two big screens for closeups and then the entire group goes outdoors to paint on location alongside the faculty. The event is being help April 12-14 and a few seats have been held back for walk up registration.
ARC members can receive a special ARC discount by using the code ARC2013 at registration.
