Painting in The Park begins June 8

Stage Fort Park

Discover how to paint Nature’s Mysteries by working “En Plein Air.”

Classes will meet on Saturdays, June 8-29 from 10am-12pm, at Stage Fort Park, Gloucester.

Add vitality to your painting by learning to see and paint the subtlety of outdoor light.

Practice observing and interpreting the landscape firsthand. Engagement with nature helps to inspire an authentic representation of the subject matter.

Park along the Boulevard; we meet at the tennis courts. There is a lot in the park but you must reserve beforehand if you do not have a Gloucester beach sticker.

In the event of rain, we’ll work on the porch at 3 Centennial Ave.

Fee: $175
