Helps & Hints
Plein Air Florida recognizes and encourages Florida groups that promote plein air painting in their local areas. They can be formal or informal organizations. Each group is independent and has their own guidelines for participation. Plein air painting groups can be found all over the state.
Plein Air Florida serves as an umbrella group for all those without a local group nearby with which they can participate.
Plein Air Florida Invitational is for artists from outside of Florida who visit regularly to paint in the state.
