Plein Air Painting Day at Fiorella Farm
Wednesday May 26 (rain date May 27)
9 am to 4 pm
All experience levels welcome, beginner to pro
$125 for the day includes three meals
Enjoy a pleasurable day of plein air (outdoor) landscape painting with me, artist and teacher Nancy Bea Miller, on a beautiful, historic farm hidden away on the edge of the city. Fiorella Farm is a working 3.5-acre organic farm, part of a larger protected land trust, near the Schuylkill Valley Nature Center in the Andorra section of Philadelphia. $125 for the day includes light breakfast, sit-down lunch prepared by chef/farmer Pat Fiorella featuring food grown on the farm, and end-of-day drinks and nibbles.
The day will begin with coffee and muffins and a guided tour of the historic farm and property. For those new to landscape painting, I will present a detailed demo on how to get started and what to aim for. Paint until the lunch hour when participants will be invited to partake of a multi-course gourmet meal in the farmhouse. Painting will continue through the afternoon, with individual instruction on an as-needed basis. This day will end with a convivial group critique/discussion accompanied by drinks and delicious snacks.
Participants must have their own painting equipment although some folding easels will be available for those who need them. To register or for more information contact Pat Fiorella:
