En Plein Air in Mayfair
20 June 2018
OUTDOOR PAINTING MASTERCLASSES
Long known for our artistic associations, The Connaught has launched a series of outdoor painting masterclasses in collaboration with distinguished Chelsea art store Green & Stone. Led by eminent British artist Alex Fowler, each three-hour masterclass offers expert art tutelage and the chance to keep your completed canvas as an enduring keepsake.
During the intimate, three-hour painting exploration of Mayfair’s hidden gardens and historic architecture, art lovers will be equipped with a carefully curated set of Green & Stone supplies and an easel. Students will receive essential tips on site selection, composition, underpainting and colour application techniques.
Inspirational sites include Mount Street Gardens and our Tadao Ando water feature on Carlos Place, among other opportunities to capture the architectural character of the Mayfair Village neighbourhood.
The Connaught’s ‘En Plein Air in Mayfair’ masterclasses accommodate a maximum of six people. Each class is priced at £250 per person and includes coffee, tea and pastries on arrival, art materials supplied by Green & Stone and an artist’s apron.
Available dates: Friday 29 June, Sunday 1 July, Friday 13 July, Sunday 22 July, Friday 10 August, Sunday 19 August
Please note: a minimum of two guests is required for a masterclass to take place.
Classes will be cancelled in the event of bad weather.
