Iconic Oceanside Location
Open to all Plein Air Festival participants, this fun, high-energy event brings together both artists and spectators for a two-hour burst of creativity
Open to all Plein Air 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. 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, presented with the opportunity to show off their wide range of creative skills, including drawing, composition, color theory, and more under demanding, yet exciting time constraints. Smell the wet paint and watch in awe as art comes to life before your very eyes!
Participation is free with Plein Air Festival membership. The public is invited to watch artworks come to life from a safe social distance.
