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.
I am a pastel and oil painter. The groups I paint with are willing to assist, help, critique, and mentor everyone who participates in the paint outs.
From time to time I will go out and paint alone or with one or two other artists. Tucson affords many, many opportunities for painting out doors.
Plein Air Painters of Eureka Springs (P.A.P.E.S.) is a welcoming group–open to artists of all skill levels and backgrounds. Meet at the scheduled location at 8 a.m. on Wednesdays and paint! www.studio62eurekasprings.com
Monterey Bay Plein Air Painters Association, MBPAPA, promotes plein air painting depicting the region around Monterey Bay. An important part of our mission is to provide our members with opportunities to grow creatively and professionally.
I’m a California native, living and painting in Humboldt County on the northern California coast. I’m always interested in finding new areas to paint. I travel and paint during several trips throughout the year, with a particular focus on the California landscape.
