This week – Tuesday through Friday (March 5-8, 2024) we’re seeing up-close-and-personal presentations during Plein Air Live, an online art conference unlike any other.

We want to help you grow, become a better artist, learn new ideas and techniques, and give you some world-class painting instruction from international artists — all while introducing you to a community that will support you!

“As a stone cold beginner, I was encouraged and inspired by all the artists who transmitted their joy of painting and how painting should be enjoyable.” ~Kate Kilbourne

Watch and interact with watercolor teachers such as Debra Huse, Don Demers, John Budicin, Carrie Curran, and many more, hosted by Publisher Eric Rhoads and PleinAir Magazine Editor-in-Chief Kelly Kane.

Painting ‘en plein air’ is one of the biggest thrills you can have as an artist. You get to immerse yourself in exciting and breathtaking landscapes and paint right in the thick of the action! There’s no shortage of different open air environments awaiting you once you’ve mastered the ability to paint outdoors. Plein Air Live gives you invaluable insights and live demonstrations from some of the world’s best plein air artists.

Have you tried painting outdoors before with no success? There are a lot of challenges that come with painting outside. That’s why it’s important to have a simple method that works – one you can follow even under difficult circumstances.

We’ll equip you with everything you need to overcome these obstacles so you can enjoy plein air painting with real confidence. You’ll have a heap of fun creating beautiful works of art surrounded by nature. It’s a great way to enjoy the fresh air and get outdoors more often!
