PAPI Mission Statement

Plein Air Painters of Idaho (PAPI) is a group of artists dedicated to the advancement of on-location painting throughout Idaho.  The Idaho landscape is unique in majesty and rich in variety.  Idaho’s rugged peaks, pristine lakes, vast canyons, raging rivers and flowing grasslands beckon artists of all abilities to enjoy the outdoors.  Plein air painters paint on location, from life, seek to interpret, preserve and share the wonders of a single moment in time.

The mission of PAPI and its members is to encourage and promote plein air painting as a unique form of artistic expression.  Through the fellowship of professional and amateur artists alike, members are encouraged to share ideas, enthusiasm and experiences with each other and with all those who appreciate great art.
