Festival tickets for PADU 2024 and some workshops are now open.

Something new, unique and uplifting is capturing the communityโ€™s imagination.
Since the days of the impressionists, artists have enjoyed the experience of painting outdoors. It is one of the true joys of being a painter.
Not only are we at one with nature, but there is also the camaraderie when two or more paint on location.

Plein Air Down Under is the Peel regions largest outdoor painting festival. Held around Mandurah’s cultural precinct, the event features awards and prizes, feature artists, youth involvement, demonstrations and an exhibition of plein air paintings.

Plein Air Down Under presents a week of outdoor and evening paint-outs, over $12,000 in awards and prizes, workshops, youth involvement and two art exhibitions. Internationally renowned artists Leon Holmes (Aus), Lori Putnam (USA) and Tony Robinson (Ireland) will run Masterclasses, paint and demonstrate throughout the festival.

Over 200 artists will be painting throughout Mandurahโ€™s town centre, cultural precinct, and the historic town of Pinjarra. When the artists arenโ€™t on site painting, the Mandurah Performing Arts Centre serves as the festival hub, offering artists and spectators the opportunity to watch free demonstrations, listen to live music and enjoy the festivities.
