The ACSM welcomed 16 campers from the ACRA Summer Camp program for two special days celebrating the tradition of plein air painting.
The campers first visited the Museum for a look at a number of watercolor painting in the collection.
Under the talented and expert direction of Betty O’Regan, the campers moved to the Arden Green for a lesson in paining with watercolors, as well as pastels and other media. The campers then spread out across the Green with palettes, paper, and paints in hand to create their own artwork. Imagination and reality were well blended by this next generation of artists from the Ardens.
Many thanks to Betty for her willingness to share her talents and time with these campers!
