Always wanted to paint outdoors but have been too nervous to set up an easel where everyone can see? Well, Kevin Shea is coming to the Island to help put the possible in plein air painting.

Mr. Shea will hold a painting workshop on Sept. 17 to 19 designed to get one started capturing the great outdoors on canvas. The classes will include demonstrations and instruction for plein air painting, palette setup, color mixing and equipment. Paint and canvas samples are also available.

Mr. Shea has 30 years of experience painting outdoors as a full-time professional artist. His work has been displayed and featured with the American Artists Professional League and the Salmagundi Club, CNN, and was contracted by Warner Brothers and the Boston Pops. He also shows with several galleries.
