Charlotte Plein Air Painters
Onslow Outdoor Painting Society (OOPS!)
PLEIN AIR CAROLINA
Plein Air Carolina is a organization of amateur and professional
painters. Plein Air is literally painting in the open air. Membership is open to all interested
painters.
Artists have the opportunity to
paint in a variety of locations, the security of
working together and enjoy the companionship of
fellow painters. It is an opportunity for all  members to grow
professionally.
There are no officers, regular meetings or
dues.  
Friday is the designated painting day but on occasions, another day may be designated. Artists need not be “Plein
Air” artists, or have plein air experience to be members. Plein Air Carolina is sponsored by the Waterworks Visual
Arts Center.
