Celebrate Our Waters Painting Event

September 16, 2017 at 8:00 am - 12:00 pm

Watch award-winning painters as they create work inspired by the shores of Orleans. Plein air, French for “open air,” describes paintings created outdoors. French Impressionists, including Claude Monet and Pierre-Auguste Renoir, advocated en plein air painting. Charles Webster Hawthorne, who is attributed with starting the art colony in Provincetown, came to Cape Cod to teach painting en plein air. The public is invited to come and watch as adults and children alike are enthralled by seeing a painting move from a sketch to a finished piece, and delighted to meet accomplished artists.
