Our Mission: To promote plein air painting in the State of Washington by providing painting, learning, and exhibiting opportunities.

  • Eric Jacobsen Workshop

    Sixteen artists participated in the two day workshop with Eric Jacobsen, our State Parks show awards juror. Despite the cool weather, everyone worked hard and listened intently as Eric shared some of his experiences, demonstrated his methods and provided encouraging support to each of us as we tried to incorporate new ideas into our work. Gig Harbor proved to be a great location for the workshop and we are very grateful to Donna Trent for sharing her spacious studio as a daily meet up place. Eric is a very personable and positive instructor. He had many good ideas; one I especially liked is that a painting should look like the artists had a good time doing it. It shouldn't be the result of feeling like you have to go out and paint another picture, but should be the result of your joyful response to the scene before you. I hope we can offer at least one workshop like this for PAWA members each year.
