Plein Air Watercolor In Action at Sorosis Park

Join Elizabeth Zimmerman at Sorosis Park to discover the art of plein air painting. This workshop is in partnership with North Wasco County Parks and Recreation.

Time & Location

Jun 24, 2024, 5:30 PM – 8:30 PM

Sorosis Park, 300 E Scenic Dr, The Dalles, OR 97058, USA

About The Event

Bring your watercolor paint setup and learn from Elizabeth Zimmerman on location. We will meet up at Sorosis Park, which gives scene options of overlooking The Dalles and the Columbia River to close ups at the Rose Garden. Elizabeth will give a brief demonstration of how she would approach her plein air watercolor painting, including explaining why she chooses her composition and what is the inspiration for that piece. She will demonstrate how she chooses what colors to mix and why she's choosing specific watercolor painting techniques. Then students will be encouraged to find their spots to work from on their own paintings. Elizabeth will walk from student to student to give one-on-one help and constructive feedback. 

Please make sure to bring your own foldable chair (camping chair would work well, a side table would be a bonus), standing easel (optional), water in non-breakable container/jar, paint brushes, paper towel/cloth towel, and sun protection, plus a bag or box with handle to transport your painting supplies. If you are short on watercolor paper, paints, or in need of a mini tin palette with watercolor paints, they will be available for purchase from Elizabeth Zimmerman at the beginning of class before we start. Some previous experience with watercolor painting is recommended for this class.

This class is offered in conjunction with "Basics of Plein Air Watercolor Painting" on June 22nd and "Plein Air Watercolor In Action Along Riverfront Trail" on June 23rd. There are price breaks for enrolling in more than one of these classes.

This workshop is in partnership with North Wasco County Parks and Recreation.
