Plein Air Outdoor Arts


Welcome! We are lovers and explorers of the wild, wonderful world. Supporting learners of all ages to engage with nature through art and play.


Plein Air Outdoor Arts welcomes learners of all ages to explore the wild, wonderful world through art and play. En plein air translates to ‘in full air’ and was coined after french artists who painted outdoors. We sure love us some fresh air! Whether it’s creating a living wall, plotting root systems in paint, or building mini-wicking beds, we design expressive learning experiences that dive into nature!
