Adirondacks Art


“Who wouldn’t want to just have everything in life provided, and just roll out of bed and paint?”

Relaxation, opportunity, and adventure await you when you join Eric Rhoads for a Publishers Invitational painting event. The purpose of this event is painters painting together. Nothing more, and certainly nothing less. Though we may come up with something unexpected, there is no event other than daily painting and meals so you should expect nothing but painting. It is simply, pure expression.

This June is the most special event of all… our 10 year reunion! PleinAir publisher Eric Rhoads invites you to paint for a week in June, reconnect with old friends and make new ones. Everyone who has ever attended is invited back, and those who have never attended will find this year the best ever. A week with friends, laughter, painting and bonding. No exhibition, no workshop, no pressure. Just painting with new friends for six days in the beautiful Adirondack Mountains of New York. One price includes lodging and meals.



“What could be better than painting out in the fresh air in a place of great natural beauty with the coolest group of people you’re ever likely to meet? Paint camp! Paint camp! I fell asleep while thinking of mixing greens and dreamed of painting all night. The only thing that will keep me going on after it’s over this year is the prospect of Fall Color Week in Maine in October.”

“The Adirondack mountains have some of the most beautiful scenes in the United States. With a vertical rise in some areas of 5000+ feet, these mountains are older than the Tetons. Also, there is more underground water in the Northeast than any place else in the world. This is evident in the many lakes, ponds, waterfalls, streams and rivers in the Adirondack state park.”
