The Magic of Pencil with pencil artist Lissa Rachelle


En “Plein Air” is defined as the act of painting / drawing outdoors (as opposed to creating art in a studio environment).

In the spring of 2017, I created an informal group for artists in the Ottawa area who are interested in getting together every couple of weeks for a plein air outing. Since there are no other “official” plein air groups that I am aware of in the area, I have crowned our group The Ottawa Plein Air Adventurers.

Starting in June and going until the end of September, we meet on the 1st Thursday and 3rd Thursday of each month, from 10am – 3pm.

Unless otherwise noted, all the places we go to are freely accessible to the public, provide free parking and have access to toilet facilities on site.

If you live in the Ottawa area and are interested in attending our plein air outings,
please email me.
