The creation of a successful painting relies heavily upon the strength of each stage of the process.
The Olana Plein Air Festival
Overlooking the Hudson River, with 250-acres of artist-designed landscape and sweeping views of the Catskills, Olana is the perfect place to get artistic inspiration! Join us on Saturday, September 24th for the Olana Plein Air Festival.
During this day-long festival open to artists of all skill levels, participants are invited to bring their own supplies and materials to paint outdoors throughout Olana. This event is held in partnership with Olana State Historic Site, and Drawing America.
