OPAS Annual Meeting, March 24, 2018

McConnell Art Center of Worthington, 777 Evening St., Worthington, OH 43085

Featuring artist Joshua Been

Joshua Been is one of the premiere plein air painters in the United States today.  His plein air work has won countless awards, and as a result of his frequent plein air trips and prolific output he really knows what artists need in terms of equipment, leading to the development of his signature “Prolific Painter” line of easels and other items specifically designed to make life simpler for the plein air painter (  On top of that, Joshua is very generous with his tips on how to create better paintings, whether out in the field or in the studio.  If you follow him on Facebook, you will notice he shares not only ‘in-progress’ photos but also gives tips on light/shadow, values, edges, shapes, and countless other information.  When the Board of Trustees of the Ohio Plein Air Society thought about which artist we wanted to invite to present at our Annual Meeting on March 24, Joshua Been’s name was at the top of the list, and we are delighted he agreed to come to give a short talk and demo at the Annual Meeting on March 24 and also to conduct a 3 ½ day workshop from March 25-28.

The final half day of the workshop will be a demonstration that is open to the public for a fee of $50.  You can get more information and can sign up online at  Don’t miss this opportunity to meet Joshua and see him in action!
