The non-profit, all-volunteer Foundation provides the tools for art education.

Since 2002, the Sonoma Plein Air Foundation has contributed more than $1,600,000 dollars to support youth art education in Sonoma.

The Sonoma Plein Air Foundation facilitates artists, arts organizations, public schools and the community to create, appreciate, and understand the importance of visual arts.

We seek to inspire and engage youth through art education, foster artistic excellence, nurture a vibrant local arts community, and bring people together for experiences that inspire a creative exchange of ideas.
