New York Plein Air Painters is made up of Chapters located in the many Regions of the state. Individual Chapters throughout those Regions host activities for members.
When members agree to meet at a specific time and place to paint, it is referred to as a “paintout”. These events are posted on chapter websites or otherwise communicated to interested chapter members. The goal in organizing paintouts is to create opportunities for artists to paint together in locations that are both inspiring and safe. Other features might include facilities nearby that include water, bathrooms and places to eat.
