PAPOH offers 2 types of paid memberships:
1) Basic Membership (no webpage)
2) Premium Membership (includes webpage)
(See the complete list of benefits below.)
Artist Members may join at either the Basic or the Premium Rate. Artist Members may be painters of any type. You do not need to be a plein air painter (although we will try to convert you). Also, you do not need to live in Hawaii to join Plein Air Painters of Hawaii (But once again we will probably try to convert you:).
Signature Members are selected from the PAPOH membership by a panel of jurors during open application contests only. Signature Memberships must join at the Premium Member level and receive the same benefits of a Premium Artist Membership with the addition of a special page highlighting Signature Artists on our website.
