What is Plein Eau

Plein Air is a French expression which means painting in the open air, catching the moment with your paint. Plein Eau brings this feeling to a place hidden for most of us. Down in the middle of the ocean or lake. Down where we can capture the magic and bring this to the ones who can not experience this.

Underwater Painting Workshop

During this workshop you will learn how to safely plan and execute a Plein Eau painting session, which medium you can use underwater and how to prepare everything for underwater use without causing any kind of pollution. Under supervision you will organize, prepare and conduct an underwater paint session.

Course Requirements

Have an Openwater Diver certification and made within the last 2 weeks a dive in the Caribbean. Minimum age 15 - under 15 only under direct supervision of a legal guardian.

When, where and what are the costs?

The price for this half day experience is only 99 U$. This will include the use of painting materials, a canvas (wood), a digital workbook and a tank of air. Additional cost if you need full dive equipment. Contact me for more information or to schedule a session.
