PLEIN FUN FEST WEEKEND SCHEDULE


Friday: Paint-out & Critique

On Friday, Jan. 26, 2018 - There will be a Paint-out with Critique for those Artists who want to join in the FUN but not interested in competition. There is a charge of $20 which includes hospitality suite. Because of the popularity of PAPB's paint-out with critique that is run by Manny Jomok we decided to make it part of Plein Fun Fest. Registered Artists will meet at Old School Square at 9 AM and decide where to paint. Critique leaders will be available to offer assistance to those who are new to plein air. This Plein Air Paint-out allows artists the opportunity to enjoy not only painting but sharing their creativity with the public. To the viewers, this art form can be very exciting because it invites them into the creative process: the sight, sound, and even smell of the artists´ world. One of the best parts of plein air painting is the congeniality of artists. At 12 PM all will meet again at Old School Square Field House for an Artist Hospitality Suite. From there we will break into groups of no more than 10 for a shared art critique. And, as last year there will be a fabulous luncheon buffet for participating artists. Paintings from this day may be exhibited at the Saturday reception in the Ocean Breeze room. They are not part of the judging.
