2018 Canoe Beach Quick Draw

Michael Clements, Canoe Beach 2018

The collection of Quick Draw paintings will capture your imagination of our special beach park where many local paddlers will spend time perfecting their sport. Many canoe races are held there. The Maui Plein Air Painting Invitational has held its Quick Draw painting event there several years.

The Quick Draw is a timed, 2-hour period for an artist to create a painting. This is a challenging and difficult competition venue. Considering the looming ‘thunderstorm’ the night before this event, all were contemplating rain. As it turned out, the day was overcast with no rain. The following are the paintings the MPAPI Invitational artists created during this competition.

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.
