Crystal Cove State Park has a rich art history spanning over 100 years. The tradition continues today, as artists trek down every year to paint our scenic cottages, iconic ocean-side bluffs, and relaxing sandy beaches, setting up their easels to paint en plein air— on site, in the open air.
Our Great Plein Air Art Experience art classes invite you to take part in this living history by spending a relaxing day capturing the beauty of the Cove on canvas with the help of Crystal Cove plein air artist, Debbie Morines! These four hour classes will take you through the process of creating your first plein air painting from beginning to end.
