About Maui Arts League

Elevating fine art within the Maui community

Maui Arts League is a non-profit organization with the mission to showcase, cultivate, and build appreciation for Visual Fine Arts while creating unique opportunities for people of all ages, cultures, and backgrounds to embrace the experience of art. Currently programs include the annual 9-day Maui Plein Air Painting Invitational, 2 adult workshops, and a youth paint out.  Our strategy is to foster an appreciation for fine art by offering a variety of programs such as outdoor plein air painting events, home art tours, art lectures, etc. for Maui residents and visitors.

Workshops are key to improving one’s painting skills. This year Suzie Baker from Texas will be teaching the Pre Workshop. The Post Workshop will be taught by Josh Clare from Utah. Both artists are established, successful artists who have taught many aspiring artists in the past.
