Palm Beach Plein Air Artists began with Donna Walsh organizing paint-outs for Palm Beach Watercolor Society (PBWS). At the same time Ralph Papa organized a Plein Air group to paint in and around Delray Beach FL. In the spring of 2013, Ralph and Donna decided to merge the groups. Later with help of key participants in the meetup group decided to use the Palm Beach Plein Air as the group name since this most aptly describes the area where we schedule paint-outs.
On April 22, 2014 at a meeting at Delray Center for the Arts, we signed the Incorporation papers to file Plein Air Palm Beach, Inc. as a Not for Profit Corporation of Florida
PAPB schedules paintouts using meetup.com/plambeachartists. PAPB is for art lovers and artists at all levels who love plein air painting in and around Palm Beach County and the surrounding South Florida vicinity bringing artists together to paint the land, sea and city scapes in beautiful south Florida. We paint and document today's landscapes that contribute to tomorrow's history.
If you have never painted outside, it can be a bit intimidating. But it is an enormous amount of fun when you go with a compatible group, and the Palm Beach Plein Air Artists are so much fun. Once people paint with us, they can’t wait to come back. Mostly we paint Palm Beach but we plan going to many places in Palm Beach, Broward, and Dade Counties and have a lot of fun
