Plein Air New Bern

Our mission is to nurture visual art education and experience through the art of plein air painting. We execute this with events,
workshops, lectures, demos, and fundraising. We partner with non-profits in Craven, Pamlico, & Carteret counties of NC.

Creativity is as vital to the life of a community as it is to individuals and a community thrives when it embraces the creative efforts of its citizens and the organizations that support the arts.

We are an annual fundraising arm for the visual arts in Craven, Pamlico, & Carteret counties.
