What we're about

Plein Air Painting means leaving your studio behind and painting or drawing in the landscape. We schedule Saturday or Sunday meet ups during fall, winter and spring. The host will choose a spot in the Phoenix metro area for us to meet up. Each individual should provide their own paints, brushes, easel, stool etc. There will be no lesson from the host. This is simply meant to be a group that gathers together to paint the world around us. We will build each other up through thoughtful critique. Members will, over time, take a role in suggesting new environments where we can gather.

During the Meetup, members should be respectful to the environment we are creating in, and respectful of the natural environment sounds. This means wearing headphones if you need music to paint | speaking softly as to not disrupt others flow :) | packing up all materials and leaving nothing behind.

We will not affect the environment - the environment will affect us ❤️

Please join us for our third plein aire painting and sketching event this season. Bring any media you like. We will meet at the west side of the Encanto Blvd parking lot. The Encanto Blvd entrance to the park is accessed from 15th Avenue. At the west side of that parking lot you can see the stream with its palm trees and bridges, we will be set up in that area facing the water, or nearby.
