‘Plein Air’ Painting Workshop 2 of 2 with Artist George Harding

Friday 28 July 2023

Bethlem Gallery

Join ‘plein air’ and portrait artist George Harding for a workshop exploring the ‘plein air’ painting technique. The French term ‘plein air’ means out of doors and refers to the practice of painting entire finished pictures outdoors. 

George Harding said on his work “My plein air paintings are quick sketches that are about the enjoyment and enrichment of the natural world and improving my observational skills as a painter.”

In the workshop, George will first explain and demonstrate the technique, before working with you to help you with your own works, painting from the beautiful grounds of Bethlem Royal Hospital (weather permitting). 

There will be a break for lunch from 12-1pm. All welcome and all materials provided but please bring your own lunch.

We are running this workshop on two days – the 27th and 28th July 2023. Participants are welcome to buy tickets to attend both sessions, or either day. You must have a ticket for each session you wish to attend.

Tickets for the 27th July workshop can be found here. Tickets for the 28th July workshop can be purchased below.
