The PAPJC has two levels of membership: Artist Member and Signature Member. In addition there are two other ways to be affilated with the PAPJC: Friend and Benefactor.
An Artist Member is an artist who has a sincere interest in painting, wants to be involved in plein air painting on a regular basis, and has paid their dues for the upcoming year. The only requirements are a desire to paint outside, learn more about painting in plein air, and to actively participate in PAPJC's activities. Artist Members are invited to participate in all PAPJC events (unless designated as Signature Member only events) and to have an Artist's page on the PAPJC website.
A Signature Member is a professional artist who has been a PAPJC Artist Member for at least the one year and has paid dues for the upcoming year. To qualify for this category, an artist must have demonstrated his/her commitment to plein air painting on a professional level. Indicators include plein air exhibitions and paint outs, gallery affiliations and sales, awards, and a consistent, ongoing production of quality plein air work. Gaining this status provides a member with a number of benefits, including priority news listings, inclusion on a Signature Member page on the PAPJC website, inclusion in the PAPJC's professional shows, and having paintings featured in PAPJC marketing materials. In return, Signature Members have agreed to contribute to the PAPJC in an ongoing fashion, using their unique skills and expertise to strengthen the organization. Signature Members are also required to paint with the group at least 3 times per year. For information on how to become a signature member, click here.
A Friend of PAPJC is someone who wants to be on the PAPJC email list but is not a paid member. A friend can attend weekly outing usless they are marked as "member only". Friends are not permited to participate as painters in any other PAPJC events, nor are they included in invitations extended to PAPJC members.
A Benefactor is someone who has chosen to support the PAPJC with a donation of $200 or more.
