Plein Air, the French term for painting outdoors, is a wonderful way to get outside and partake in one of Provincetown’s most joyous traditions. In this class we will take our paints to the beach and work from real life. We will learn about color, different painting techniques, and the fun that comes from painting in the landscape!
Participants are encouraged to register for all sessions. Each week will feature a different focus or technique. PAAM Youth Education will supply materials. Each session will meet outdoors at PAAM and work within the surrounding neighborhood. Maximum enrollment for this course is 7 students. For further information or to register, please email Curator of Youth Education, Tessa Bry Taylor at
