Plein Air Session Details – What to Expect?

Painting in the City was conceived as an idea to promote outdoor painting in a semi-informal approach around some of Malta’s most nostalgic cities and picturesque locations!

An opportunity that will have you put on a new set of lenses through which to experience and rediscover some of Malta’s most panoramic spaces in Malta and Gozo…and of course led by a professional artist!

Who are these sessions best suited for?

These semi-informal sessions are open for all skill levels. Sessions are adequate for both beginner and more advanced students who wish to enjoy painting in nature. Just pop in bring your preferred art materials and get kicking!

Each session is structured with guided exercises and real-time demonstrations led by a professional artist.

Additional Information – Artist’s recommendations

Since we will be open to all the natural elements it is best advised that students come light yet resourceful.

Main things to bring:

  • A smooth cushion/ portable stool to sit on and all the necessary materials (an email will be sent to you regarding materials)
  • A board to tape your paper onto so it will be steady for you to paint on.
  • If you have your own portable easel make sure to bring it or you may hire one from us for just the session at a small charge.
  • Last but not least…dress up well!
