The Oakland Township Historic District Commission (HDC) has invited local artists to share their painting and drawing talents.  Painting “en Plein Aire” refers to painting in “fresh air” or out-of-doors. You will have the rich experience of painting with professional artists at the beautiful rustic Cranberry Lake Farm in Oakland Township. The grounds provide varied subject matter including historical buildings, beautiful landscapes and distant vistas. The artists teaching this workshop create in all art materials and use both realism and abstraction styles. You will have a general information discussion and then have individual attention. If you enjoy getting outside and crating art, this is the group for you. Barb Barber, Historic Preservation Planner, said “she especially looks forward to the group critique.” A materials list of your needed supplies is available upon registration.

The artists are:

  • Janet Almstadt-Davison has been a Plein air painter and teacher for over 30 years working in watercolor, pastels, oils, acrylics and pen and ink.
  • Bobbie Tarbunas is a lover of all things beautiful, a gardener, a nurse and protector of nature. This artist of many years works in oil, acrylics and watercolor.
