Plein Air Painters of Idaho (PAPI) is a group of artists dedicated to the advancement of on-location painting in Idaho. The Idaho landscape is unique in majesty and rich variety. Idaho's rugged peaks, pristine lakes, vast canyons, raging rivers and flowing grasslands beckon artists of all abilities. Plein air painters paint on location, from life, to interpret, preserve and share the wonder of a single moment. PAPI members encourage and promote plein air painting as a unique form of artistic expression. Through the fellowship of professional and amateur artists alike, members are encouraged to share ideas, enthusiasm and experience with each other and with all those who appreciate great art.
