At The Art League School, the world is our classroom, and what better time than the spring to take advantage of that? We have several classes coming up for painters in all media — including digital — who want to venture en plein air to capture the landscape.
These classes and workshops meet outside. Grab your easel and click the links to register!

This weekend workshop with Mike Francis meets for two afternoon painting sessions on the Potomac.
- Art on the Go … With Your iPad ($95, Sunday, April 27)
This one-day workshop on the iPad, a “sketchbook on steroids,” explores the possibilities of painting apps for the plein air artist. Read more from instructor Bobbi Pratte.
- Landscape Painting ($150, Saturdays starting May 3)
This class with Fred Markham focuses on composition, value organization, and color relation, with demonstrations for painters new to plein air.
- Gouache for Field Studies & More ($175, May 17–18)
This weekend workshop with Diane Tesler covers the use of gouache, or opaque watercolor, which combines the portability of watercolor with the flexibility of oil or pastel.
