2014 Maui Plein Air Painting - MPAPI Book coverBe among the first to own this special book capturing the 2014 Maui Plein Air Painting Invitational. It is the FIRST in the mini-series of ‘small’ books to document this annual event.

The MPAPI book is high gloss with 46 pages of photographs of action and award winning paintings illustrated beautifully by professional photographer Jen Taylor of J TAYLOR 7/10 media. Spellbinding photographs feature the beauty of Maui – from its beaches and sunsets, to historic sugar and pineapple plantation life, to its people and culture.

All proceeds from the book support the ability for us to continue this event. You’ll be sure to want to own this book and start your collection of mini-books telling the story of painting plein air on Maui, Hawaii. Come join us on Maui in February always the week of President’s Day. Jean Stern, Executive Director, The Irvine Museum judges the event. There are 13 award winners honored each year.

In 2017 the MPAPI workshop is taking a different approach. This 4-day workshop is a 'dual-teaching' workshop lead by Jason Sacran and John P Lasater, IV. Our workshop teachers are selected from the group of professional 'visiting artists'. Classes are usually comprised of local Maui artists, workshop teacher referrals, and those wishing to take a class from someone that focuses on specific painting techniques that are of interest to them.
