International Plein Air Painters

The 6th annual Great Worldwide Paint Out commences on the weekend of September 5, 2008.
Plein air painters from all over the globe will convene to record the
historical buildings, places and vanishing farmlands, as part of
raising global awareness on our frail planet.

The Worldwide Paint Out is open to all artists. Sign up is free at . Organize a group in your local area, join a
group already online and encourage other artists to join in.
Send this info to other artists you know who may be interested in
helping to promote this Worldwide effort.
On a Worldwide scope, we need all the help we can get.

In Europe, it’s a common sight to see artists working outdoors and
while their efforts are much admired, people pretty much allow them to
work uninterrupted. In the US and Canada, plein air painters are a bit
of a novelty and create curiousity and entertainment. Children are
especially interested and awed by watching an art work being created.
Someday, outdoor painters may be as common place as everyday people on their way to work.

The World Tour of Contemporary Landscape Painters is part of
International Plein Air Painters Worldwide Organization. Partnered,
with Landscape Painters International, both organizations tour the
globe promoting green space and the obligation of landscape artists to
call attention to the cause.
You can see more info on this tour on IPAP’s website
