FAQ for Prague Pleinair Participants:

Workshops are sold out, what's the point in coming for your event?

Workshops aren’t the primary focus of our event. Prague Pleinair is about an actual organised pleinair (painting outside with a beautiful view surrounded by all-level artist fellows) which we have planned for every day of our event. Prague Pleinair is about networking, connecting with like-minded individuals, and immersing yourself in the vibrant community of artists. Join us for the opportunity to paint together amidst the stunning backdrop of Prague. 

Furthermore you can enjoy many other free activities, like demonstrations from esteemed artists, presentations, collective activities, partake in our opening party, nightly programs, and receive sponsor gifts.

Is it okay if I'm not a professional painter?

Absolutely! Our event welcomes painters of all levels, from beginners to seasoned enthusiasts. You’ll find a diverse mix of participants, and skill level is irrelevant. Prague Pleinair isn’t a course or competition; it’s a gathering of individuals who share a passion for painting and creativity.

Do I need special equipment to participate?

No, you’re free to use whatever materials you’re comfortable with. A simple sketchbook and a few colours are sufficient. Closer to the workshop dates, we’ll provide a list of materials needed for specific artists’ workshops. But ultimately, it’s up to you and your painting preferences.

What's the difference between a master demo and artist workshops?

In our workshops, participants pay to engage with a limited number of fellow painters. The instructor demonstrates techniques, provides guidance, and assists participants in their creative process. On the other hand, master demos are free events open to all participants. Esteemed artists create a painting during the event for attendees to observe, offering valuable insights and inspiration.

Is knowing English important or necessary?

While English serves as the primary language for our website and communication channels, it’s not essential for participation. Our diverse community includes individuals fluent in various languages, including Czech, Russian, Ukrainian, Spanish, German and more. You’ll find a welcoming atmosphere regardless of your language proficiency.

How will it look and what to prepare for?

We will be painting outside in the agreed locations in Prague. Please check the photos on how it was before. 

Please keep in mind that the weather can affect being outside. It is good to check the forecast and dress accordingly. Good to have a cap or panama and sunscreen, or a raincoat in case of rainy weather. We,  as an organisation, will also check the weather to make final adjustments on the selected locations.  

Many artists bring tripods, or small chairs to have a seat during painting. Even though Prague is full of shops and affordable cafes, some snack and water would also be nice to have – not to get distracted during the painting process.
