Dear Fellow Painter,

Welcome to our Sacramento Plein Air Painters group!

"Plein air" is French for painting in the open air, (outdoors), in the natural elements, which sometimes comes with braving the thick fog, or the blistering sun, wind, bugs, etc.

Sometimes painting in public places all alone can feel awkward.  As painters meeting together, we find comfort in camaraderie, and often inspire each other.

The best part about painting together is the friendships that grow from our times together.

You don't have to be a pro—just bring your paints, brushes, easel, canvas or sketchbook, sunscreen and a snack.

Our group members meet and paint together in Sacramento and surrounding areas and we take occasional field trips farther away.  We even have a new member who owns a house in France that she'd like to open up to for some of us to visit.

No need to RSVP "No"— just say "Yes" and come join us for the fun!  Hope to see you at some of our paint outs  soon.

Sacramento Plein Air Painters has 600 members as of December 2016.

We're the largest Plein Air Group IN THE WORLD! (At least as far as Plein Air Meetup groups are concerned. There might be some other plein air organization out there in the world that's larger than ours... but I doubt it.)

When you answer the questions to join us, please include your real profile face picture (now required to joining us). Sorry, pics of pets, paintings  or logos are no longer acceptable profile pic submissions - we want to see our members faces.

MEMBERSHIP in our group is FREE!   If you'd like to sponsor or group, please contact me.

Please upload your real name and real face photo for your profile pic. A pic of your landscape painting, pet or favorite celebrity or cartoon character won't get you in, sorry....

Also, if you'd like to be an assistant event host for some of our meetup events, please let me know.  Call me at 916-776-two thousand. 

Thank you,

Martha Esch, 

Organizer for Sacramento Plein Air Painters,

Sacramento Sketchers

and Sacramento Jazz Jams.
