Plein Air Days

Plein Air days has been a commitment since the DAC organization began. They are enjoyed by members who wish to experience the outdoors and relish the social aspect of painting together. Plein Air days are hosted by The Plein Air Painters of the Desert Art Center at various locations in and around the Coachella Valley. They are free to all DAC members and one or two of our instructors are on hand to give advice.

For more information and to join the next Plein Air day contact: info@desertartcenter.org

En plein air is a French expression that means “in the open air.” It is used by artists to describe the art of outdoor painting, capturing landscapes and views in natural light. These plein air painting techniques apply to both plein air oil painting and plein air watercolor.
