Mission Statement

Laguna Plein Air Painters Association (LPAPA) builds upon and promotes the renowned landscape painting heritage of Laguna Beach. LPAPA serves its members regionally, nationally and internationally through events, programs and education.

LPAPA enhances the visibility and livelihoods of its artist members through the prestigious Plein Air  Painting Invitational, and other year round gallery and exhibition opportunities and programs. LPAPA provides professional development and business management education for its members (serving professional artists, emerging artists and art students). LPAPA enhances its mission through alliances with complementary arts organizations and provides mentoring and scholarships to emerging artists, as well as its youth education programs dedicated to inspiring the next generation of artists.


Background Statement

“Plein air” painting is the artistic practice of painting the landscape on site, outdoors, at the location being depicted.  It is this artistic tradition, rooted in Orange County’s culture and geography, that LPAPA aims to promote, protect and preserve. 

LPAPA was founded in 1996 by 5 of the area's talented and passionate plein air painters and advocates.  The group came together with a dream to preserve the history of the plein air movement of 19th century California, to support the tradition as it exists today and to foster a network among plein air painters nationwide.  Today, LPAPA's membership has grown to nearly 600.

LPAPA's mission is to build upon and promote the renowned landscape painting heritage of Laguna Beach, and to enhance the visibility and livelihoods of its member artists.  LPAPA preserves Laguna's rich artistic legacy and the tradition of plein air painting in California, across the nation and around the world.

The annual Laguna Beach Plein Air Painting Invitational, is celebrating its 21st year,  it is LPAPA's flagship event that raises funds and awareness to sustain LPAPA's mission and year-round programs.  

There are 4 main impacts the Invitational has in the Laguna Beach and surrounding Orange County communities: 

(1) this 9-day event raises awareness for the plein air art movement, and has become a proven critical megaphone for sharing the natural landscape and plein air art with the world;

(2) the Invitational creates community and tangibly connects the residents and visitors with place.  Lectures and community conversations create an ongoing salon of art appreciation, local history, environmental awareness and more. Support of this event directly impacts artists living and working in Orange County who are dedicated to experiencing and depicting its natural beauty;

(3) various events during the Invitational foster the love of plein air painting in young people, ensuring the tradition will continue, with inspiration provided by the beauty, tradition and artists in their midst; and

(4) this event sustains and strengthens LPAPA as an art organization.  The Invitational is LPAPA's flagship event, and provides unique interactive opportunities between plein air artists and the public.  This differentiates LPAPA in the arts world, brings in more supporters to the organization and to this painting tradition, and engages the community in a two-way conversation about the  value of place-based creativity.


Impact Statement

In 2018, besides presenting 12 gallery shows and 3 annual art shows, LPAPA successfully increased its membership to 550+  (it has doubled membership in less than 3 years), completed the first phase update of our website, and added three public elementary schools to our Plein Air Project youth education program (designed to integrate California Impressionism and Plein Air Painting with the 4th grade studies of California history).  In 2019 we will continue to grow our membership (artists, students and supporters), expand our  annual art show dedicated to watercolor artists, we will increase the number of colleges served in our Next Generation education program from 1 to 3 (providing mentorship, opportunities and scholarships to college age art students), we will complete the next phase of website upgrade to better serve the public and our members, celebrate the Centennial History of Plein Air Painting in Laguna Beach and celebrate the history of the  Laguna Beach Plein Air Painting Invitational (now in its 21st year), continue and expand our community outreach and education programs countywide. 
 
Laguna Beach was established as an art colony by plein air artists more than 100 years ago. Our organization is considered the steward of Laguna's artistic heritage being fully dedicated to the roots of our art colony in educating future generations.  Our artist members are each individually small business owners, most without gallery representation or affordable options to develop their art business.  Our artist members rely on our organization's support to help provide opportunities to show and sell their works, provide business consultation and management, and provide marketing and exposure for their artwork to grow their businesses. 

Needs Statement

Program funding is needed for:   (1) presenting our annual 9-day invitational event is by far our most pressing need with the cost of building of a temporary venue being the largest annual expense incurred by us with the loss of the local museum's partnership; (2) sustaining our gallery space to continue presenting  juried art exhibitions, and indoor member and community education programs; (3) education program supplies, outreach, mentor artists, implementation and growth; (4) adding staffing needed to sustain our growth; (5) expand marketing to grow our membership and support through extended community outreach.

CEO Statement

Laguna Plein Air Painters Association (LPAPA) has been in existence since 1996.  I have had the pleasure of being their Executive Director since 2009.  During that time I have watched LPAPA grow to a nationally (as well as 9 international countries)recognized and highly respected Plein Air Art Organization.  LPAPA has many goals, one of the most important being preserving the legacy of plein air painting.  Our members and our supporters our most important to us.  We believe that our programs, gallery shows, educational workshops and community outreach help educate not only the local communities but a much larger national community as to the possibilities of growth and preservation through art.  Through the support of our members and sponsors we work at introducing how the plein air art world preserves our lands heritage. Our artists by capturing the stunning landscapes, seascapes and urban structures in a work of art are in essence preserving history for all to see and appreciate.  

Board Chair Statement

After having served as a volunteer for the Laguna Plein Air Painters Association for over a decade, I was invited to join LPAPA's Board of Directors in 2013.  It was a time of crisis with our annual Invitational event, and the very existence of our nonprofit, in jeopardy. Today, I serve as LPAPA's President and Social Media Director, dedicated to furthering its mission.

In 2019, LPAPA will present its 21st annual Laguna Beach Plein Air Painting Invitational. This is LPAPA's flagship event and greatest annual fund (and friend) raising opportunity. For the first 14 years, the annual Invitational was presented in partnership with our local Art Museum.  In late 2012, through no fault of LPAPA, the Museum changed artistic direction and discontinued its support of LPAPA's annual plein air painting invitational. With this change LPAPA lost its event venue, patrons and sponsors. This has proven to be a challenging but rewarding transition for LPAPA.  The biggest challenge has been to find adequate space and funding to present our event, a 9-day world-class community event that is considered one of the most prestigious of its kind. LPAPA needs to raise $250,000 or more each year to continue the Invitational; never before in its history had LPAPA raised funds at this level, nor had it managed the entire event on its own with limited resources and one employee. LPAPA is proud to say it has successfully raised the funds and continued the Invitational for the last 5 consecutive years, and is committed to continuing to do so into the future. Although it has been difficult and challenging, the biggest reward has been in establishing LPAPA as an independent nonprofit art organization, growing its community support, and doubling its membership and programs over the last 5 years.  This could not have occurred without the help of our patrons and volunteers, and we are grateful. As we grow, we find it more and more challenging to sustain this level of growth without significantly increasing our membership, patron and donor support.

The history of Laguna Beach and the legacy of plein air art have been completely intertwined for more than 100 years.  It was in the 1800's that artists started coming to Laguna Beach to capture the picturesque landscape and the famous California light so coveted by outdoor painters. Norman St. Clair is credited with establishing Laguna Beach as an "art colony" around 1903. Early plein air artists such as William Wendt, Edgar Payne, Anna Hills and Frank Cuprien helped raise the funds needed to open the first art gallery in Laguna Beach in 1918, which later became a museum in 1972, and exists today as the Laguna Art Museum.  The legacy of plein air painting in Laguna, which LPAPA is dedicated to preserving, is an important part of our local culture and history.

While there's no denying plein air painting has deep roots in Laguna Beach, we believe this cultural facet of local history is easily lost without LPAPA's dedication to its preservation.  We are, have been and will always be, committed to bringing the local and surrounding art communities together to celebrate, experience and learn about the plein air art form...its past, present and future...so that this legacy will continue to inspire the next generations of artists.

Programs


The Plein Air Project - The Younger Generation

The Plein Air Project is LPAPA's multifaceted education program.  The Youth Program is a 4-part program that is designed to integrate with 4th grade studies of California history.  First, an in-class lecture by a professional artist with historical painting images used as reference; second, an in-class painting demonstration by a professional artist showing the painting process from start to finish, with the children encouraged to watch up close as the paint is applied to the canvas; third, a field trip to a local museum for a docent tour of California impressionism; and fourth, an outdoor painting field trip where the kids each have their own easel set up to paint in plein air with mentoring provided by professional artists.  The budget estimate is based on one class of 40 students, with one lead artist instructor and 2 assistant artists, materials, supplies, administration and storage/maintenance.
Budget  $2,000.00
Category  Arts, Culture & Humanities, General/Other Arts, Culture & Humanities, General/Other
Population Served Children Only (5 - 14 years) Children Only (5 - 14 years) Children Only (5 - 14 years)
Program Short-Term Success  More than 2000 grade school children have been served through this program to date in Laguna Beach and Orange County schools.  Many had never visited a museum or painted a painting.  Although we do not have statistics available at this time to track the programs success, the children have provided us with feedback about how special and inspiring the program was to them personally.  One of our favorite moments was during our Invitational paint-out, where 35 professional artists gather for a painting competition, that one of the children who had participated in our program was overheard explaining to his parents that these painters are plein air artists!
Program Long-Term Success  The youth education portion of LPAPA's Plein Air Project is designed to introduce and connect children to local history and cultural arts heritage, experience artistic expression, connect children with seeing and appreciating the natural and vanishing landscapes, seeing beauty in our built landscapes, and inspire the next generation of artists to continue to express themselves in a creative, positive outlet.
Program Success Monitored By  Feedback from the children, parents and teachers, has been positive and encouraging.  With many schools having to cut their arts programs, LPAPA's Plein Air Project is a valued and appreciated program to offer to our youth.
Examples of Program Success  Many more schools wish to participate in LPAPA's Plein Air Project, with additional funding being needed to grow the program, train mentors, purchase materials and supplies.  With many schools being required to cut or eliminate their arts programs, this is a valuable program to be able to offer to educate our youth with an art program that ties to local culture and history.

Plein Air Project - Annual Kids Paint Out

Each year LPAPA invites children, grades 4 through 12, to a plein air paint out mentored by professional artists.  Each grade level is mentored by one or more professional artists and receives a painting set up that consists of an easel, paint, brushes, canvas and supplies needed to complete a plein air masterpiece.  The children get to keep the painting set up (valued at $100) to encourage them to continue painting after the event.  The artwork created during the Kids Paint Out is then displayed on LPAPA's gallery walls available through their LPAPA in Residence collaboration with the Forest & Ocean Gallery in Laguna Beach.  The kids' paintings are available for purchase based on a suggested donation amount with 100% of the proceeds given to the participating schools. Nearly 100 local school children participate each year.
Budget  $15,000.00
Category  Arts, Culture & Humanities, General/Other Arts, Culture & Humanities, General/Other
Population Served K-12 (5-19 years) K-12 (5-19 years) K-12 (5-19 years)
Program Short-Term Success  Sometimes all someone needs is a little encouragement to pursue a dream or try something new.  This event helps to encourage a "yes I can" attitude with immediate feedback, guidance and encouragement to create a painting.  The pride and sense of satisfaction that is achieved when the kids see their artwork hanging on the gallery walls is priceless and something to be encouraged and treasured.
Program Long-Term Success  This program helps to expose more children to our local arts culture and history than what can be served with our 4-part 4th grade program curriculum, and inspires artistic creativity and expression, and a greater appreciation for our natural environments, inspiring the next generation of artists and ecologists.
Program Success Monitored By  At this time the schools are not able to provide us with tracking information that would help us evaluate the long term program success.  We are encouraged by the feedback received from the children, parents and teachers, and wish to grow this program to serve more children as well as provide scholarships to encourage the kids to continue being creative.
Examples of Program Success  More schools wish to participate in LPAPA's Plein Air Project youth education, Kids Paint Out and Next Generation programs than current funding and resources can accommodate.  Additional funding, staff and resources are needed to grow the program.

Plein Air Project - The Next Generation

Each year LPAPA invites young adults who are enrolled in local colleges to participate in LPAPA's Next Generation program.  This program includes a lecture about plein air painting and its history, a painting demonstration by professional plein air artists, and pre-event mentoring.  The kids that participate in the pre-event program are invited to participate in the annual Next Generation Paint Out.  Each participating student also receives a one year LPAPA Student Membership.  The artwork created by the college kids during the paint out is hung on the LPAPA in Residence gallery walls in Laguna Beach, and judged for awards.  The top three award winning artists are invited to show their work at the annual Collectors Gala, and presented with scholarship awards.  The budget estimate is based on one college participating and includes cash scholarships, mentoring, training, gallery space, and administration.
Budget  $2,500.00
Category  Arts, Culture & Humanities, General/Other Arts, Culture & Humanities, General/Other
Population Served Adults Adults Adults
Program Short-Term Success  Feedback from participants has shown that most, if not all, of the participants have continued their art studies in pursuit of professional careers in areas related to visual arts.
Program Long-Term Success  Helps to encourage, support and train young adults seeking creative careers.
Program Success Monitored By  At this time tracking is not available to us through the schools.  Feedback from the students has shown positive results and has added students seeking careers in visual arts with the program mentoring and/or scholarship awards.
Examples of Program Success  The program has grown from one to three colleges being served, and continues to grow with the number of students participating each year.

Plein Air Project - The Now Generation

The adult education portion of LPAPA's Plein Air Project consists of mentor paint outs, Plein Talk Lectures, workshops and community outreach, and visual archives.  The budget estimate is based on a full year of programing with an average of 18 programs presented annually (a combination of indoor, outdoor and in-gallery presentations).
Budget  $18,000.00
Category  Arts, Culture & Humanities, General/Other Arts, Culture & Humanities, General/Other
Population Served Adults Adults Adults
Program Short-Term Success  This portion of the program helps to provide career advancement for professional and emerging artists, and art students, as well as educate artists and the community about local history and the tradition of plein air painting.
Program Long-Term Success  This program provides education opportunities for professional and emerging artist members and student members, as well as the greater Laguna Beach and surrounding communities. Program focuses on mentoring artists in painting techniques, composition and color mixing; business consultation and development; indoor and outdoor painting workshops; Q&A lectures and newsletters; community conversations about the arts, artists, collecting and local arts cultural history.
Program Success Monitored By  Success is monitored by attendance, which has grown each of the last three years that the program has been expanded.
Examples of Program Success  Greater attendance and participation for all of the programs offered.

Annual Laguna Beach Plein Air Invitational

Each year the Laguna Plein Air Painters Association (LPAPA) turns Laguna Beach, a historic art colony, into an outdoor painting studio with its annual Laguna Beach Plein Air Painting Invitational.  Thirty-five of the nation's top plein air artists are invited to paint the town and surrounding landscapes as they compete for top prizes in what has been called the most prestigious event of its kind in the western United States.  This 9-day event focuses on the tradition of plein air painting that has community roots that date back more than 100 years.  The public is invited to watch and interact with the artists, and enjoy events and festivities that include lectures and painting demonstrations designed to promote and preserve the historic legacy of this outdoor painting tradition.  The paintings created during the week are premiered at a Collectors Gala which is followed by a public art exhibition and sale.  With the exception of the Gala, all events are free of charge and open to the public.  The program budget includes the cost, advertising, printing, venue, awards and rentals to support all events and activities over a 9-day event period.
