Trout Museum of Art

En Plein Aire | Age 11-14

Painting en plein air is the act of painting outdoors. By feeling the weather, seeing the changing light, and experiencing the environment firsthand, creating outdoors gives an artist an entirely different sense of the landscape they are painting from than if they are in the studio. During this summer camp, we will look at examples of famous works created by artists painting outdoors from the early 1800s to the present and then pack up our paints, brushes, and canvasses to do work of our own!

All supplies included. TMA members receive 10% off all registrations.

Summer Camps at TMA are one week, Monday – Friday, all led by local professional artists.

Cristian Andersson | Art Educator 

Cristian Andersson is an artist who works out of Matchbook Studio in Appleton, Wis. While he primarily creates abstract oil paintings, in 2016 he started branching off into installation and performance pieces that deal with contemporary concerns: the overwhelming nature of our news, navigating interpersonal communication as it becomes more abstracted through social media, and the balance between notions of the self and the greater community. He is also involved in community art events: curating small exhibitions of local artists, teaching classes to middle and high school students, and working with students from UW-Oshkosh in an annual off-campus invitational exhibition.
