Plein Air Painting Group

Plein Air Painting Group – The Barnstable Plein Air Painters

Cape Cod Art Center has organized a Plein Air painting group, The Barnstable Plein Air Painters! There is no instructor and no fee, just artists painting together. You’ll learn many tricks to add to your arsenal! The Barnstable Plein Air Painters will be visiting sites all over Cape Cod from May through October. Most of the sites are open to the public others will be private property and are only available to the group for that particular day.

Barnstable Plein Air Painters Group meets on Mondays, 8:30-11:15.  At 11:30 we have a critique.  You don’t have to participate in it, however most artists enjoy it.

If you want our weekly updates, please contact us to be placed on our email list.  Email:  or call 508-362-2909

July Sessions:

July 16th, Historic Sandwich and Grist Mill

We will be using sites that are in “Plein Air Painting Cape Cod,” a book Cape Cod Art Center published in 2011. We sold out of the hardcopies, but we are able to sell it as an eBook download for $10. This eBook is great for artists, photographers, hikers, and nature lovers. Click here to purchase the Plein Air eBook
