Art Center Morro Bay offers ‘Joy of Plein Air’ 3-day course 

Debra Groesser offers 3-day landscape painting course at Art Center of Morro Bay.

Plein Air landscape painting draws inspiration from nature

—Morro Bay Art Association will present, “Joy of Plein Air Landscape Painting,” a 3-day workshop by award-winning artist, Debra Joy Groesser. The three days of painting are on June 12, from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m., and June 13 & 14, from 8 a.m. – 4 p.m. The demonstration and classroom are located at the Art Center Morro Bay, 835 Main Street, Morro Bay, CA 93442. The outdoor location is still to be determined.

Debra Groesser earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Bellevue College, Bellevue, Nebraska. Debra paints many subjects, however, is noted for her impressionistic style, plein air landscape work. Debra states, “Painting is such a spiritual experience for me. Nothing inspires me more than being out on location, capturing the subtle nuances of color, light, and atmosphere that can only be achieved by painting from nature. Debra also paints portraits and figurative works. In 2011, she was commissioned by Omaha Performing Arts to create a large portrait of Richard and Mary Holland, which hangs at the Holland Performing Arts Center in Omaha, Nebraska.

Prior to the workshop, Debra will give a demonstration, free and open to the public on Monday, June 11, 2018, 3-5pm. This workshop will begin with an indoor class encompassing preparation, use of value and tools. The following 2 days will be held out of doors, on location. This schedule may be modified, due to inclement weather.

This workshop is appropriate for beginners to advanced. For more information, visit  Art Center Morro Bay or call (805) 772-2504 or Patricia Newton (805) 423-1100.
