    Art En Plein Air - Open Space Art Series

    Where: Summit County Community Gardens (4251 Shadow Mountain Dr.)
    When: Saturday, August 19, 2017 from 6pm to 8pm

    If you love wildflowers, art and being outdoors, this is the class for you.  Join Basin Recreation, Plant Specialist/Utah Open Lands Stewardship Director, Mike Auger and a local artist to learn about our native plants, and to create a masterpiece En Plein Air. En plein air, or plein air painting, is a phrase borrowed from the French equivalent meaning "open (in full) air.”

    Participants will enjoy a short hike among one of Basin Recreation’s Open Space, while learning the names of wildflowers along the way, then settle in to allow the creative juices to flow en plein air!  

    All levels are welcome to join.  Art supplies will be provided, but participants are welcome to bring their own. Classes are held outside, so please come prepared for changing weather. Please bring water, snacks, and something to sit on if desired.
