Welcome to CPAPS!
The Connecticut Plein Air Painters Society is comprised of local artists who enjoy the camaraderie, support and safety of painting together. We select sites within the State of Connecticut that provide our painters with bucolic farmlands, coastal marshes and vistas, waterways in forests and open spaces, as well as some of our historic and unique residences and villages. Connecticut is a small state, but we are blessed with inspirational scenery in every corner, from border to border, and from season to season.
CPAPS members range from beginners, who wish to learn the logistics and methods of plein air painting, to nationally recognized professional plein air artists who participate in competitive plein air events and actively exhibit and sell their work. We offer our members exhibition opportunities, demonstrations and workshops by both our Elected Artists as well as visiting national artists, and information about events and other items of interest. We are a very friendly group, and encourage you come paint with us!
