Plein Air Events


From our spring plein air painting festival at the National Capital Trolley Museum to recent outings to capture fall colors, MAA provided more than a dozen opportunities in 2022 to make art together in beautiful regional settings.

This photo slideshow captures the variety in the plein air events we had this year. The full list of locales appears below it.

Just as Mother Nature take a siesta during the winter, so will we, returning in the spring with a new slate of plein air painting and drawing events.

Thank you to plein air chair Sandhya Sharma for a very successful year of plein air outings.
