Oceanside Plein Air Festival

OCEANSIDE PLEIN AIR 2023

Painting Southern California in the Open Air

 

We're excited to welcome artists of all skill levels to participate in our bi-annual Oceanside Plein Air Festival. Oceanside offers gorgeous coastlines, charming cityscapes, peaceful lagoons, rolling hills with lush flora and fauna, and the historic Mission San Luis Rey, among other visual splendor to capture on canvas. Plein air painting is a painting completed in the field, on location, and “in the moment.”
