About Us

Judsons Art Outfitters Staff Photo Fall 2021

Judsons Art Outfitters has been supplying Plein Air artists with the tools they need to get out and paint since 1987. *Hey, that's thirty-five years!* We understand the joys and frustrations of plein air and try our best to provide the right tools and the help you need to fulfill your artistic vision.

We’d like to see plein air painting restored to its traditional place as a worthwhile endeavor for anyone, regardless of artistic "talent” or ambition. An outdoor sport, if you will …something a little bit challenging that will take you away from the mundane and into the moment.

If you have any questions about getting started or picking the right equipment to fit your needs, give us a call!
