Plein Air Artists Colorado (PAAC) was created for the love of plein air painting and to enjoy the camaraderie of painting outdoors.

A founding principal is that PAAC creates opportunities for artists to paint outdoors together and that these paint outs be open to everyone of every level.


Join PAAC as a member for the opportunity to enter our annual juried show, attend special destination paint outs and workshops, and other special events.  You'll also receive our monthly Members' Newsletter via email.
