Read What These Enthusiastic Attendees Say.
Invaluable!  The demos and interaction with other artists also made for an excellent experience. Thank you!
— Nishita Jain, Columbia, MD
The demos were fantastic and taught me several new techniques.

The instructors were all very helpful, supportive and encouraging.

The Art Marketing Boot Camp started each day with great ideas to sell and promote your art. 

All this contributed to four art sales from paintings that were inspired by this convention. 

Looking forward to PACE 2019!
— Kathy Rennell Forbes, Atlanta, GA
PACE made me focus on the skill sets I needed to be a much better painter both inside and out.

Save two years of frustration and speed your progress as a plein air painter.

“As a first-timer, I had no idea that I would receive the respect I did from so many gifted artists. There are no autograph booths 
at a Plein Air Convention.”
