Many years ago I took a delightful class from Arnie Casavant. He was a retired art educator who discovered the joy of painting and offered a great summer plein aire class at his home in Chelsea at Admirals Hill. The class was a delight and I stumbled through figuring out how to paint outdoors and the challenges that go along with it.
A few years later (and two kids) I was able to take a second delightful class with Arnie Casavant. This class was held at this miraculous little spot in Eastham, MA. As a class Arnie lead us on excursions around Cape Cod with out art supplies in tow and we learned from him daily on the fine art of pleain aire painting.
Arnie and I stay friends and I continue to learn from him! He was an artist in residence at the at school were I teach and we have painting adventures regularly. Arnie's work can be seen at:
