Whether you're an aspiring artist or a seasoned professional, we want you to get in on the fun and excitement of painting plein air in the Sacramento region. Plein Air Sac is a community arts program of Youth Connections Unlimited, a Sacramento-based nonprofit organization that develops programs for at-risk and high-risk children.

We want you to get inspired by our famous waterways, towering buildings, and the cozy neighborhood vibes of Midtown, East Sac, or beyond and help us continue the rich tradition of plein air painting in Sacramento, while also supporting youth and community arts education.  

To get started, sign up as a Registered Artist using the form below.

Signing up is FREE and registered artists enjoy the following benefits:

  • Exclusive invitations to Plein Air Sac art-making events throughout the region

  • Introduction to potential patrons, and supporters

  • Listing on the Plein Air Sac website & print materials

  • Inclusion in Plein Air Sac marketing collateral

  • The submission of ONE completed piece for a chance to compete in our juried exhibition

  • The opportunity to partner with participating businesses


Registered Artists will also have the option to submit additional works for consideration in our juried event this fall.

To do so, the artists will need to complete a Registered Artist Call For Entry Form, pay the submission fee for the additional works, and submit up to THREE images they would like to be considered in the juried exhibition.

Please complete the form below and we'll be in touch with you to go over the next steps in the process.

Thank you for your participation!
