Why Join MAPAPA?
Through workshops, paint outs and other special events, we promote the appreciation of, and participation in the art of outdoor painting. By becoming a member you may participate in workshop and painting trips (paint outs). A special membership benefit is a Paint Out Plus event, where an accomplished artist shares a favorite painting place and provides a demo and instruction.  Through our newsletter,The Pallette, we provide information about events, workshops and other news to inform members about art events in this region. Paint outs provide wonderful opportunities to meet fellow painters, learn while doing, observing and asking artists’ questions.
