About the Plein Air Painters of America

The Plein Air Painters of America (PAPA) are the original society of outdoor painters. Their mission is to promote the tradition of painting the landscape directly from life, while providing members and others the opportunities to expand their knowledge through shared experience, extraordinary workshops, and public exhibitions. 

Founded in 1986 by artist Denise Burns, on Catalina Island, California, the Plein-Air Painters of America began as a small group of artists dedicated to painting from life. For the first two decades, PAPA held annual paint-outs followed by an exhibition, in Avalon on Catalina. This format, unique at the time, has given birth to countless similar groups and events across the country. 

In 2007, PAPA expanded its format to include exhibitions in museums and art centers to emphasize the importance of field studies in the process of making studio paintings. Most of PAPA exhibitions are documented in catalogues. 

PAPA members are seasoned outdoor painters and consider some of the best teachers of the genre today, conducting workshops throughout the country and internationally. PAPA also collaborates with Streamline Premium Art Videos to produce instructional videos that are indispensable learning tools.
