*En plein air is a French phrase meaning "in the open air". It describes the process of painting a subject outdoors, though the phrase has also been applied to the resulting works.
^The plein air painting experience includes painting outside in all weather conditions. An alternative date will be offered, however, if we do have to cancel due to extreme weather. 
If a change of date doesn’t suit the group then we will offer an alternative activity (eg., interior or still life) at a suitable venue.
