En Plein Air Karol Oakley

17 March 2018 - 24 March 2018

The next En Plein Air Karol Oakley art workshop, "Pastel Adventures" is being held in March 2018. Join Karol for expert tutelage on this pastel and watercolour underpainting, pen and wash tour.

Karol is an experienced international tutor and plein-air painter, who loves to share her know how with participants, showing them ways to achieve a plein-air painting in their own style and at their own pace. Norfolk Island has something new to paint every day and these are demonstrated, explained and discussed. Participants choose their own subject/ motif at each painting session or can follow along with the step by step demonstration, with each person receiving individual attention. Karol teaches in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere with the emphasis on painting and holiday. Norfolk Island combines the best of both, just for you.
