While the team at Plein Air Today is doing our best to give you the most up-to-date details, please also check with the individual organizations to confirm that the information has not changed since it was published here.

If you’d like to see your updates included in this list, please reach out to us at: [email protected].

Together, we will carry on.


Laguna Plein Air Painters Association (LPAPA)
Implementing a LPAPA CARES! sales event through March 29th. We hope that during these trying times these reduced prices may entice you to not only acquire a great work of art but also help support our working artists and LPAPA’s continuing programs. The artists will receive their full original commission from the sale proceeds, with nonprofit LPAPA absorbing 100% of the price reduction from their share of the proceeds.

Like everyone in these uncertain times, our Board of Directors and volunteers have struggled to figure out how to move our 15th annual event forward. One of our supporters, Deborah Eidam, made a simple post on our Facebook page yesterday, “Stay safe everyone and paint on!” And that is what we have decided to do! Watch our website for some virtual plein air fun until we can celebrate in person again.

On schedule as of 4/3/20
Relaxation, opportunity, and adventure await you when you join Eric Rhoads for a Publishers Invitational painting event. The purpose of this event is painters painting together.

It is simply, pure expression.
