Description

Summer is here! Pack up all your art supplies and head to the great outdoors!
Painting en
plein air (French for “in the open air”) truly gained in popularity in the mid-to-late 1800’s.The Impressionist artists were especially enamored of plein air painting: reflecting the mutable, changing effects of light over a landscape was the epitome of achievement for many artists like Monet, Renoir, and Pissarro. Don’t be intimidated — you too can capture a moment en plein air in our local West Windsor Arts Council environment, & Van Nest Park in West Windsor.

About the Teaching Artist: A resident of West Windsor, Lori Langsner has recently retired after a rewarding career in arts education in the NYC Public Schools. Lori has an MA in Special Education from Brooklyn College, a BA in Art Education from Queens College, and has continued her studies at the Art Students League, Princeton Arts Council, and Mercer County Community College.

Lori’s paintings were recently on view at Princeton Arts Council, and have been included in exhibitions at Mercer County Community College, Mercer County Library, and Prallsville Mills. Lori has been not only a classroom practitioner but is currently a facilitator of a learning community of other visual arts teachers around best practices and teacher effectiveness in the arts program at www.Startchr.nyc.

Lori is excited to reconnect with her own personal art as an “en plein air” painter in oils, surrounding herself with nature and art. She looks forward to sharing her passion for oil painting with those who want to start their own personal quests into the world of art.
