We look forward to welcoming the Participating Artists for the 2017 Maui Plein Air Invitational to the warm breezes and beautiful sunsets of Maui. 26 artists have been selected to paint during the week-long event. Artists come from throughout Hawaii, the mainland USA, and for the first time Australia. Their works represent a wide variety of painting styles showcasing local perspectives. This year in addition to many artists that have participated in the past, we welcome 8 new artists to our event.

MPAPI Committee


Maui Arts League is excited to offer two plein air painting workshops in conjunction with the February, 2018 Maui Plein Air Painting Invitational. Both professional artists excel at ‘teaching.’  It is one thing to be a great artist, and yet another to be a superior instructor. Our workshop teachers are selected from the group of MPAPI professional ‘visiting artists’. Leon Holmes from Australia and Morgan Samuel Price from Florida will share their painting knowledge and techniques with  workshop attendees. You won’t want to miss out.
