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 will be Monday, 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 masterpieces created by the young artists will be exhibited at the LPAPA Gallery, located at 414 N. Coast Highway, Laguna Beach, from Monday, October 4th through Monday, October 11th, 2021. The children’s paintings are available for purchase through the LPAPA Gallery with 100% of the proceeds donated to the participating child’s school.
Each participating child receives a plein air painting kit to take home and continue painting. LPAPA is able to offer this program to the participating schools and kids free of charge through the support provided by Art Supply Warehouse, Blick Art Materials, The City of Laguna Beach Lodging Establishments, The Festival of Arts Foundation, and The National Charity League Laguna Chapter.
We are grateful for our 2021 Kids Mentor Artists who donate their time and talents to support the kids and this event. Paintings created by these fine artists will be exhibited and available at the Collectors Gala on Saturday, October 9th, and the Invitational Art Show on Sunday, October 10th. Please plan to join us! Support the kids and the artists!
