Come Paint the Great Outdoors with Us This Summer!

Plein Air Artists! We want YOU this summer for our fourth annual Plein Air Paint Out event, August 14-17, 2023 on gorgeous Whidbey Island. For four days, come paint the beaches, forests, townscapes, and vistas that Whidbey affords, with an emphasis on Coupeville. Artist Registration is $70.

The event is open to all, novice to professional. The Paint Out and Gala are fundraisers for the Pacific NorthWest Art School. Experienced plein air artist Mike Wise will be our Juror.

Art Lovers! Whidbey Plein Air Paint Out is free to the general viewing public and we would love to have you come out to view the Plein Air artists in action during the week. On Friday, August 18th, please come to the Pacific NorthWest Art School from 6pm – 9pm for the Gala and Art Sale. The Gala is free to artists registered for the Paint Out.
