Whether you’re a seasoned painter or just picking up a brush for the first time, Plein Air Artists of West Michigan welcomes you!

PAAWM held it’s first paint out at Cold Brook Park in Kalamazoo County, May 17, 2008. Since then, we’ve painted all across the region and enjoyed the company of new artists at each paint-out.  
Many of PAAWM’s artists are represented by some of the finest galleries in the state, others are just beginning their journey as plein air painters. Everyone is a valued artist in our group.

Discover painting in its purest form, meet new friends and watch your ability to paint grow at the same time. The struggles can be humbling but the rewards can be amazing.
