PleinAir magazine offers several events for education or painting together with others.
Plein Air Convention
The Plein Air Convention is the largest gathering of outdoor artists in the world. Held each year in a different beautiful place, the convention features daily painting as a group (as many as 700-800 painters), instruction, and demonstrations from a faculty of about 80 top-level artists, plus a giant expo hall of art materials.
