A Plein Air Session is an outdoor painting session derived from the French expression “en plein air” meaning “in the open air.” In Coyne’s class, scenic design and scenic painting students work in watercolor to learn to observe light and quickly capture its ever-changing and ephemeral qualities on buildings and landscapes.
“With it’s beautiful trees, lawns and architecture, we love coming to Graylyn as there are wonderful scenes to paint in almost every direction you look,” says Coyne.
As a part of this course, Coyne takes his students to other locations around town like Reynolda House and Old Salem. In addition to honing their scenic painting skills, these students are also learning about the rich history of Winston-Salem
