En Plein Air Art Classes offered Walpole MA area Residents In addition to her summer camps for kids and adult art lessons in studio, Artist and Teacher Rosemarie Morelli Crocker of Walpole MA is teaching en plein air to all students with all skill levels, beginner to advanced. En plein air is french and means the act of painting outdoors.    I've been painting in studio with Rosemarie for almost a year now.   It is an enjoyable way to let your creative juices flow.  She is an excellent teacher and I was more than excited at the chance to get outside and give an real time landscape a whirl!   She began with a list of what to bring.   It reminded me of those "what to bring to camp" lists.    Easel, paint, bug spray, sun screen, umbrella, water, etc.    The class met at Clark's Pond in Wal...
