Maui Plein Air
Feb 15-23, 2020
This 9-day event highlights 24 professional plein air painters from throughout Hawaii, the United States mainland, and Australia. The painters capture the images of Maui – its people, its beaches and ocean scenes, its majestic mountains and valleys, and its historical buildings. The public watch artists create inspiring artworks, attend art sales, and attend educational events.
Artists create inspiring paintings from locations around Maui and specifically at Lahaina Harbor, Kapalua Bay, and Royal Lahaina Resort Beach Area.
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.
