Plein Air Down Under – Outdoor Painting Festival

Festivals and Celebrations

24 Sep 2022 to 26 Sep 2022 Once Only Event

The 2022 festival dates are the long weekend in September, with additional pre-festival workshops and activities – all designed to celebrate the art of painting outdoors.

Plein Air Down Under will be held around Mandurah’s town centre, cultural precinct and the historic town of Pinjarra.

En Plein Air is a French expression meaning “in the open air” and refers to the act of painting outdoors. The artist’s subject is in full view, with no photographic reference. It allows the artist to paint a moment in time, in real-time.

Plein air artists capture the spirit and essence of a landscape or subject by incorporating natural light, colour and movement.
