Maui Arts League

Pre and Post Event


Workshops are key to improving one’s painting skills. Workshop teachers will be selected once the 2020 artist roster is published.  Return in September for updates or send us an email via the website of your interest and someone will contact you when teachers and curriculum have been confirmed.
These workshops provide an opportunity for our local artists to take classes from some of the most experienced plein air artists in the world. It also allows artists from other locations to come to Maui and paint in our beautiful surroundings.
