About Us

The Nevada County Plein Air Painters is a group of artists who like to get outside and paint together. Some of them have been painting together for over 13 years. They don’t pay dues or have any elected officers, anyone is welcome to join and skill level is not a factor. The main thing is to get out there and paint!  Here are some of the advantages to joining the NCPAP:
We meet once a month on the 1st Thursday of each month at the Briar Patch Co-op Market in Grass Valley at 5-7pm. The purpose of the meeting is to have an informal critique of our art work, get comments, etc. We also plan paintouts, trips to see art exhibits, and talk about upcoming events. We have an annual group show to display and sell our work. We plan a monthly paintout on the last Sunday of the month, weather permitting, and, of course, hold spur of the moment paintouts when the mood strikes!  Please contact us through our form below.
