Plein Air Artists Colorado


The roots of PAAC go back many years (early 90’s) to the Art Students’ League of Denver when several landscape students started painting “En Plein Air” on a regular basis. In November of 2005 Plein Air Artists of Colorado (PAAC) and Plein Air Colorado (PACO) merged into one National organization, headquartered in Colorado. The new name: Plein Air Artists Colorado (PAAC). The founding members of the combined groups shared a vision and believed this merger would be of benefit to all who joined and they now offered a paid Membership for those who wanted to participate in annual juried shows and national advertising, though those who wished only to come and join in weekly paint outs were more than welcome for no fee. This policy still holds today.
