ABOUT pLEIN AIR Curacao
INTERNATIONAL ART FESTIVAL
The Plein Air Curacao Festival celebrates the creation of paintings while immersed in nature. The Festival presents a week of exciting programming that brings together esteemed international and local painters to paint on land, underwater, and from high-altitude locations. Events include workshops, exhibitions of festival paintings, and a concluding contest.
The tropical island of Curaçao, often referred to as the Caribbean's "Hidden Treasure," offers the perfect combination of stunning geography, rich culture, and colorful architecture. The capital city of Willemstad has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage City. With a vibrant art culture, Curaçao is the perfect place to expand your skills and visibility as an artist in the company of other devoted Plein Air painters.
I really enjoyed meeting and working with enthusiastic local artists! Looking forward to next year's adventure!

Joining Plein Air Curaçao is like an addiction. Once seen Curaçao through artist's eyes, tp return there is a must. There's so much to see and to paint, one time is not enough!
Art Foundation Curaçao does very good work to organize this festival.
The organizers were fantastic. They really made us feel welcomed and painting trips enjoyable. I look forward to teaching a workshop and to painting with everyone again!
Returning to Curacao for my 5th time to participate in Plein Air Curacao. I have loved each visit because of the friendships made, the exciting painting experiences I have had, the wonderful support of the Plein Air Curacao Volunteers and Planning Committees (who have always created special activities and found beautiful locations for the painters) and just amazing Curacao itself.
Exhibition of the paintings
An evolving 10-day Exhibition is held from 9am to 6pm at Art Foundation Curacao Gallery, located in Hanchi Snoa, Punda.
Enjoy a delicious dinner in the magical moonlight and then capture the picturesque scenery on your canvas.
Join the fun! This boat ride gives artists the chance to seize the beauty of Curaçao from off-shore.
There’s good food, live music, great shows, and fun shopping every Thursday night during the Festival in Punda.
Kids are welcome to participate in the Kiddies Corner and make art themselves. Register on the spot at Wilhelmina Plein.
