Plein Air Painting with Peggi Kroll-Roberts
California Impressionism, or California Plein Air Painting, was an early 20th century movement in both Northern and Southern California where artists worked out of doors, rather than in a studio. The artists painted the California landscape – mountains, seashores, deserts – showing the rest of the country what this relatively new state had to offer.
Friends of Robinson Gardens are delighted that renowned artist Peggi Kroll-Roberts, who trained at Arizona State University and the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, has agreed to teach a class in this inspiring style in the verdant beauty of Virginia Robinson Gardens.
The class is open to beginners and experienced artists and will be taught in watercolor and gouache. As Peggi is experienced in all mediums, she has agreed that students may also work in oil or acrylics if they wish. A materials list to follow.
