Plein Talk

Welcome to the MPAPI Plein Talk blog and social networking community!  The event will be showcasing a few new activities to enhance the overall attendee satisfaction and experience; art related discussion panels and a youth paintout and reception, as an example.  The 9-day MPAPI event schedule is a pack-filled robust offering of art activities for all to enjoy.  The ‘pre’ and ‘post’ art workshops focus on educational opportunities for aspiring artists.  All in all this adds up to making MPAPI a memorable art experience.  Whether you are an artist, an art enthusiast, or supporter of art related activities in your community, you are sure to find areas that will interest you.

To assist our followers in learning about the 2018 participating artists, we’re adding individual short bios over the next few months.  Please revisit our website and follow our Plein Talk blog or look for “Recently on Plein Talk” to see the newest entries.

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.
