Anatomically Correct has brought its Brush with Nature, Plein Air Painting, program to the Emily Oaks Nature Center since 2009.     The program invites visitors to watch artists paint in an outdoor setting.   "En plein air" is a French expression which means "in the open air", and is particularly used to describe the act of painting outdoors, which is also called peinture sur le motif ("painting on the ground") in French.   "Its almost like live theatre or performance art.   It is so much fun to see how an artist works; and visitors can enjoy the magic of having a painting appear right in front of their eyes.
