Plein air painting, a tradition that flourished in California between 1890 and 1930, has been significant in its ability to record the Mission’s historic and architectural setting over time. Visit the Mission August 1st and 3rd to experience the plein air painting tradition as it is carried on today. Painters may be seen across the Mission grounds during regular hours, between 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.

To learn more about art history at the Mission and the Mission’s collection, take a new Art Walk guided tour (offered every Friday).

Following your visit to the Mission, visit Mission Fine Art Gallery to experience art in San Juan Capistrano by local artists. Mission Fine Art Gallery is located across from the Mission in the Ferris-Kelly Building (circa 1920s). Mission Fine Art Gallery is a member of the Heritage Tourism Association, an organization that celebrates and furthers San Juan Capistrano as a place of unique historic identity.
