Painting outside in the Burgwin-Wright gardens

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) – A local landmark serves as the setting and the focus for some painters in downtown Wilmington.

Plein air painting puts artists outside for their artwork, and the Burgwin-Wright House has just what the students from Cameron Art Museum are looking to line up on their canvasses.

Instructor Kirah Van Sickle said Thursday's lesson was a first for her students this year, but she first fell in love with the gardens during a class trip last year.

"I love the historic significance of its place here," she said. "It offers a lot of vantage points for the artists."

The class is for beginner and intermediate painters. It lasts six weeks.
