I run an informal gathering of Plein Air artists in the area west of Chicago Illinois. Every couple of weeks I pick a spot and send an email to those that have expressed an interest in painting out doors. I mention when and where I’ll be painting and anyone that wants to join me shows up. It’s always fun and once someone tries it they usually come back for more.
The Missouri Valley Impressionist Society (MVIS) was organized to promote the appreciation and development of Impressionism in and around the Missouri River Valley Region—from the western gateway to the Rocky Mountains Region. The MVIS is one of the few organizations in the Midwest that embraces plein air painting throughout the year. Members host plein air paint outs each month for like-minded artists. Nonmembers of the organization are always welcome to paint along. Paint outs are posted on the MVIS website. Follow us on facebook.
