Plein air — a french word simply meaning open air, it’s roots date back to the early nineteenth century and has flourished world wide ever since. The Gaeltacht Thiar Tír Chonaill art group are a branch of the National & International Plein Eire organisation and meet weekly at various locations to capture the sights and scenes, culture and heritage of North Donegal. The emphasis of the paint-outs is not on producing ‘finished’ art pieces but inspiring people to take up their brushes, pencils and pastels and experience some relaxed fun and creativity in an atmosphere where people of all abilities are encouraged to just have a go. Three Bealtaine paint-outs will take place during the month of May and will be preceded by this introduction to plein air workshop, focusing on composition, using thumbnail sketches, equipment & materials, tips & tricks.

1.00am – 1.00pm
