Artist and teacher, Celia Kelly is attracted to the outdoors and has developed a preference for painting landscapes en plein air (the act of painting outdoors).  For this class, Kelly will relate her experiences and impressions of working directly in the landscape by demonstrating on canvas how to think compositionally and paint with oil colors.

Participants will supply their own landscape image that can be worked into a painting.  Kelly will offer her advice, suggestions, and answer questions via Zoom to each student.  To learn more about our instructor and see images of Kelly’s art, click on this vignette from  Louisville Visual Art Celia Kelly Art.
