Though anyone can learn to paint on their own, the best and fastest way to learn and avoid frustration is to find someone who can teach you the tricks and techniques. You'll speed your learning process and make bigger strides fast. Most instructors offer workshops, which are a one week course with other students. Some offer private lessons and group lessons you can take daily or weekly.

Use our directory to find an artist in your area. If you don't find one, search 'artist', 'plein air', and your town or area and contact them to see if they teach, or know someone who does. You may also find a plein air club in your area offering classes, and its members may invite you to paint with them.



Marie Johannes

I live in Colorado high country, Grand County, 75 miles NW of Denver. I’ve been painting Plein Air for about 10 years and love to share the knowledge I’ve gained with others by teaching. I have taught both at our local history museum, Cozens Ranch Museum and privately.


Andre Nobrega Fine Art

“I aim to capture the mood when I am painting. To catch a single moment in time I use light, shadow, weather, color, and feel. I paint primarily with oils en plein air. I also spend time in my studio working from photographs and studies.”



Linda Marino

Linda Marino teaches in a relaxed and friendly environment for absolute beginners to those who want to improve their skills. We will meet up at my studio or on location along the Connecticut Shore, from rocky craigs to sandy beaches, salt water marshes to New England farms, quaint coastal villages to marinas and more. Weekly classes or one day workshops.

Have Brush, Will Travel/ Jaime Howard

Come with me and learn to paint indoors and out. I offer painting classes in my home studio and surrounding area as well as national and international plein air workshops. Things look better through the artist’s eye; learn to see the world through the eyes of a painter.
