Event Details

Open to all registered festival participants, this fun, high-energy event brings together both artists and spectators for a two-hour burst of creativity highlighting one of Oceanside’s most iconic outdoor locations, Mission San Luis Rey. With the task of completing a painting in a single sitting, Quick Paint artists are challenged to grab a brush, set up an easel, and paint en plein air for all to see. The finished creation may be purchased off the easel or in a sale at OMA through Friday, July 30.

Participation is free with Plein Air Festival registration. The public is invited to watch artworks come to life from a safe social distance.
