2018 Plein Air Workshops

Plein air painting workshop, Lahaina Harbor, 2006, by Lois Reiswig

Imagine taking a plein air painting workshop and being in ‘paradise.’ The above photo was taken the first year of the Maui Plein Air Painting Invitational in 2006. A lot has happened since our inaugural event. As an example, we added workshops to our schedule of activities. These workshops provide an opportunity for our local artists to take classes from some of the most experienced plein air artists in the world. It also allows artists from other locations to come to Maui and paint in our beautiful surroundings.

Workshops are a key to improving one’s painting skills. In 2018, we are offering two great opportunities to learn from two of the 2018 Maui Plein Air Painting Invitational artists, Leon Holmes from Australia (workshop enrollment closed – SOLD OUT) and Morgan Samuel Price from Florida (workshop enrollement closed – SOLD OUT!).  Because both artists are established successful artists, they are sought after by art organizations to participate in their art events as well as teach workshops in their communities. We are excited that they have selected Maui as one of their locations to share their talents.

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.
