En plein air " in the open air" painting was popularized by the impressionists and was a major shift in how artwork was created at the time. The Group of Seven relied on the ability to get outside and view the Canadian landscape directly, in order to capture the true spirit of the land and you can too.
A demo, some basic instruction in the use of oil paints, and individual help and you will ready to create your own treasured painting of the Minden Whitewater Preserve ir Ritchie Falls. Other locations can be arranged as well.
Local artist Harvey Walker has been painting for years and has a studio just north of Minden.
