Barbara Tapp and Carrie Curran at PACE '23. "Values are more important than colors and the best way to improve your understanding of values is to draw without colors.”

The most recent Plein Air Convention & Expo (PACE) took place in Denver, Colorado this past May. enjoy a just-for-look back at a favorite moment here!

Before the Opening Ceremonies of PACE took place, we enjoyed early workshops and meet-n-greets. In one new favorite session, Carrie Curran led the Pre-Convention Basics Course with guests Barbara Tapp, John Taft, and Bruce A. Gomez.

“I have been painting for many years and I just started painting outdoors,” said Paul Friederichsen of Marietta, Georgia. “I thought it was very important for me to come to this conference because in the last two days, I have learned more than I have in the last forty years and that is amazing. I really enjoyed the different demonstrations and the teachers. The faculty members are amazing because they are first of all great teachers and explain very clearly, and also they are very friendly and generous.”

Join PleinAir Magazine in the Smokies for the 11th Annual Plein Air Convention & Expo! May 20-24, 2024 we’ll have five stages with over 80 instructors, and you will be painting throughout The Great Smoky Mountains, including the Biltmore Estate. See you there!
