The State of WIPAPA: 2019

Good Morning!

I hope you are all outside painting this spring! As I believe it is the fastest way to learn to paint!!

I am posting to give you a status update on WIPAPA.  Last year was particularly difficult for my family and I, leaving me with very little time to paint let alone deal with WIPAPA.  The only commitment I was able to keep was to keep the calendar of events up to date on this blog. This upcoming year doesn't look like things are letting up.

IMPORTANT: If you sent me a check for dues last year or this I have not cashed them. Until we have someone step forward to administer WIPAPA please do not send any further dues. I am removing the form from this blog.

It is my sincere hope that you will find artists near you and go out to paint together!

I'll see you out there!!

Wendie Thompson

I am posting all competitions in the state as soon as I have a link to them for 2019. If you know of any others please let me know asap! This is what I have so far:

Hey WIPAPA peeps! Let's meet here for May's open Paint! Looks like fun!

All Plein air painters are invited to meet on the bluffs of Concordia University to paint and enjoy! No fee or registration. Bring up to four art works to sell to the public as well. "Portraits on the Bluff" are also a consideration for the public. They can choose which artist to render their likeness into the landscape for a beginning price of $300.00 they may do so! Sales are the responsibility of the artists. This event is hosted by the League of Milwaukee Artists, Concordia University and the Ozaukee Master Gardeners. In conjunction....In the Fieldhouse of Concordia, from 9-noon, the Master Gardeners are having a herb is a HUGE event. Thus the name....PLANT AND PAINT-OUT. An after-party will take place from 4-6pm at Newcastle Place (reservations required: call Kristine at 262-243-2170).
