Our 2024 Plein air Painters program begins Wednesday, May 22, 2024 and meets every Wednesday through Wednesday, September 25, 2024. Artists of all levels and all mediums are welcome. If you haven't tried plein air painting before, this is a great place to start!

This group will paint at a variety of planned locations in the Leelanau County area, including water views, village scenes, rural landscapes, gardens, vineyards and more. Included in the list this year are a number of new locations, including numerous private property locations, giving the artist the opportunity to paint at locations not typically available.

Program includes:

  • Calendar of paint-out locations and site details provided upon registration.
  • 19 plein air sessions on Wednesdays, 9:00 AM – 1:00 PM.
  • Weekly paint outs begin May 22 through September 25.

  • Open to all artists, all mediums, all levels of experience.
  • New participants welcome to join after start date, but must register for full season.
