Our History in Plein Air...

The time has come to start painting PLEIN AIR again. In the beginning of the International Plein Air Painters Worldwide Paint Out, small groups formed throughout the US, Canada, Brazil, Italy and islands in the Caribbean.
PLEIN AIR PAINTING was not new, it was simply coming into focus again.
Outdoor painters were now becoming known as Plein Air Painters.
In the forming stages of International Plein Air Painters organization , there really was not much of an internet. A plein air group was started on Yahoo groups and we still have some of our Charter Members from 2001.

For many years we held a PAINT OUT in Niagara Falls which was hosted Internationally by Niagara Falls New York and Niagara Falls, Canada. Artists travelled from many States and Provinces to participate at one of the most amazing Wonders, the great Falls at Niagara that borders two countries, or as the Mayor of Niagara Falls, New York stated 'one great city with a river running through it '.

Through the years International Plein Air Painters has accumulated a lot of history, with local groups being formed in the first few years in many countries.

Before email, we received news clippings, CD photos and thank you notes from artists all over the world who 'found' other artists painting outdoors and started their own groups.

International Plein Air Painters and the Worldwide Paint Out at Niagara Falls was featured in one of the first issues of the original Plein Air Magazine thanks to Eric Rhoads, Publisher

All these wonderful interactions are archived at IPAP.

International Plein Air Painters has always had, as its purpose to unite artists who have a love of painting outdoors from life without the regional restrictions of borders.

In 2024 International Plein Air Painters celebrates its 23rd Anniversary !!

We still host the annual WORLDWIDE Paint Out with free registration and probably the most affordable membership dues of just $25.00 US yearly, which has never increased, with that we promote our Members and do administration/ bookkeeping fees. So, while we're not officially a non profit, we promote International Plein Air Painters for the love of and support of plein air painting.
