On Sunday, October 2, 2022, all 35 Laguna Plein Air Invitational Artists will gather for a 2-hour Quick Draw Painting Competition (9AM – 11AM) throughout Heisler Park in Laguna Beach. The public is invited to join us for a walk through the park, to witness the creation of plein air masterpieces — from start to finish in 2 hours! — while enjoying a Sunday walk through the park!
Our “on the ground” LPAPA reporter will be live-streaming the Quick Draw paint out on Facebook starting around 8:45 am PDT as the artists set up and we’ll check in on their progress throughout the 2-hour event! Our viewers can register for free Virtual Access to have the opportunity to bid on a Quick Draw painting through a Proxy bidder! Click here to learn more or register to participate in the silent auction with a personal proxy!
Immediately following the end of the 2-hour painting competition, the Artists will take their wet paintings to the Laguna Festival of Arts for framing and preparation for the quick sale in a silent auction. Following the Quick Draw, plan to join us at the Laguna Festival of Arts for a Lunch with the Artists (12:00-1:00 pm, advance ticket registration required), Meet & Greet with the Artists and Quick Draw Silent Auction (1:00-3:00 pm, free entry, open to the public – no registration required). This is a great opportunity to view the artwork and bid on a special painting that you watched the artist paint before your eyes — when you collect the work of Laguna Plein Air Artists, you’re not only collecting an original plein air painting, you are also collecting the experience and memories that go along with it… if you win the bid be sure to have your photo taken with the artist!
