Fulton County Goes "En Plein Air"!!

En Plein Air means "in the open air".  It is an art term used to refer to painting outdoors.  This was a practice made popular by the Impressionists and it is enjoying a resurgence among painters today.  Many communities are sponsoring plein air competitions and workshops.  The Fulton County Art Club tried their hand at it today in the area behind the public library.  It was a peaceful and enjoyable morning of painting and sharing friendship.  The club hopes to include some kind of a plein air component to the activities during Fulton Fall Folk Fest in October.
