Visit PAAR's NEW Website:
Plein-air [pleyn-air; Fr. ple-ner] - designating a painting executed out of doors and representing a direct response to the scene or subject in front of the artist.
Plein Air Artists of Riverside (PAAR) is a professional group that offers beginner-friendly, year-round opportunities for Plein Air Artists to meet and paint. PAAR has two paint outings each month, coordinates quarterly demonstrations by well known Plein Air artists, coordinates and presents exhibitions each year, and holds an annual nine-day Paint Out with an exhibition at RAM.
A great way to connect with fellow painters with shared interests, PAAR is an opportunity for individual painters of any level to take their brushes outside and create representational paintings.
Back in February of 2010, PAAR was awarded a plaque by the City of Riverside and the Riverside Arts Council as the Arts Honoree of the Month.
PAAR is an enthusiastic supporter and participant in the Riverside and Inland Empire arts communities.
