Experience and capture the pristine reflections of morning light on Longwood’s Large Lake and the ephemeral colors of spring with this plein air offering. Begin the class online as instructors Frank DePietro and Diana Heitzman offer techniques and tips for painting en plein air. Then, enjoy exclusive early-morning Gardens access as you put your knowledge into practice during a four-hour, in-person painting experience along the Large Lake, with your choice of medium, easel, and tools. You’ll find plenty of inspiration in this spectacular setting amid the spring-fed lake, rolling green lawns, and springtime color. 

Dress for the weather and wear comfortable walking shoes. Bring your own painting equipment—paints, brushes, easels, and tools—in the medium of your choice.

Inclement weather date: Friday, April 22.
