School starts in less than a month, and soon the long, relaxing summer days and evenings will give way to the coming of fall.
Before that happens though, the Pajarito Environmental Education Center has a variety of programs on offer, from outdoor painting, to a unique story walk evening, to touring an abandoned copper mine.
On Aug. 3, local artist and teacher Monika Kaden will team up with PEEC to offer a “plein air” acrylic painting excursion. “En plein air” is a French expression, which means “in the open air,” and it is used to describe the act of painting outdoors.
Participants can explore the Los Alamos landscape through art. The emphasis of the class is to have fun painting in nature while creating a unique and personal work of art.
The class will meet from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Fuller Lodge Art Center which has nine working backpack easels that can be lent out for the event. Village Arts will offer a discount on art supplies for the class. The cost is $24 for PEEC members, or $30 for non-members. Advance registration is required, and space is limited to only 8-10 participants, so be sure to register soon.
