Artist working on a painting at Plein Air.

If you love the thrill of painting outdoors, consider joining the LCAA’s Plein Air Group. They meet weekly at various places across Lancaster County and beyond. Drawing and painting from life is a great way to sharpen your skills and share your passion with other artists. Locations include landscapes, street scenes, gardens, waterways, etc. Plein Air events are seldom cancelled due to a weather forecast. There is not an instructor, but many of the experienced artists are willing to share their expertise.

An event for each week's paint out will be available on our LCAA Plein Air Facebook Page at:  A logon to Facebook is not necessary. We strongly suggest checking the page weekly for updates. For email notifications, go to the LCAA  Facebook page and "Send Message" with your name, email address and phone (optional).

Plein Air Tips

Dress for the site. Experienced outdoor artists wear breathable clothes--long-sleeve shirts and long pants to protect against ticks. A brimmed hat will keep the sun out of your eyes.

Bring snacks and drinking water.

Bring a plastic bag for trash and rags/paper towels for clean up. We must leave the area the way we found it.

For oil/pastel painters, you may want to bring a cardboard box lid to keep wet paint off your car's interior.

First-time Plein Air painters may want to bring items they already have in lieu of purchasing expensive equipment right off the bat. Come with a chair and small table (a foldable bench works)--items that are easy to carry. You'll see a variety of setups used by artists that will make you a more informed buyer when the time comes to invest in equipment.

Bug spray and sunscreen come in handy.

Don't forget all of your painting supplies--paper, canvas, medium, paints, brushes, etc. Make a list so you don't get to the painting location and realize you're missing something important.


The Spring drawing classes have been cancelled.

Ceramics, Sculpture, Fine Crafts
