Virtual Tour: Painting Paradise


Event Navigation

Sunday, December 11th

1:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m. PT


The period of the late 1800s to the early 1900s was an amazing moment for painting outside (also known as plein air painting) in California.  Artists throughout the state were painting on site with breathtaking results that were unique to this part of the world. They explored color and light through visible brushstrokes but their styles were varied. We will explore the natural landscapes of California through the eyes and brushes of these dynamic painters.
