Each year local school children are invited for a plein air painting experience at Heisler Park for the Annual Kids Plein Air Invitational Paint-Out & Cookie Reception. This year’s event took place on October 4th, with children from each grade level, 4th through 12th, selected to participate by their schools to join LPAPA for an outdoor plein air painting experience. Each grade level is paired with a professional artist and mentored in the creation of a plein air painting from start to finish.
The kids’ masterpieces are currently on exhibit at the LPAPA Gallery, located at 414 N. Coast Highway, Laguna Beach, now through Monday, November 1st, 2021. The children’s paintings are available for purchase through the LPAPA Gallery with 100% of the proceeds donated to the child’s participating school (suggested donation $50 but any amount is appreciated!).
Each participating child receives a plein air painting kit to take home and continue painting. LPAPA is able to offer this program at no charge to the schools and kids through the generous support provided by Art Supply Warehouse, Blick Art Materials, The City of Laguna Beach Lodging Establishments, The Festival of Arts Foundation, The National Charity League Laguna Chapter, and our Mentor Artists volunteering their time.
Please come by the LPAPA Gallery to see these amazing paintings and consider making a donation to support our local schools!
