PLEIN FUN FEST WEEKEND SCHEDULE:

Friday: Paint-out & Critique

On Friday, Feb 1, 2019 – 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. Artists may bring 1-2 guests at $10/per person. 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. Paintings must be back by 12 noon to be part of the Silent Auction.

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. After critique, artists will have time to tweek paintings if they wish, and frame them for hanging in the Silent Auction, but they must be completed and framed by 3-3:30. Framing is to take place on tables after table cloths are removed.

Paintings from this day may be part of the Silent Auction that concludes at the Saturday reception in the Ocean Breeze room. They are not part of the judging.

Sunday Paint the Beach for FUN

We had a great time last year painting the beach, so we are planning to do so again. Like before we will at the pavilion at the end of Atlantic Ave. There will be coffee and donuts. The city of Delray Beach does not require a permit for our paint-out that could have upwards of 50 plus plein air painters but asks us not to congregate in one place. Imagine the visual of all the plein air painters stretched out along the beach. NIrvana. This is just a painting for the shear joy of it as Delray Beach prohibits selling of anything at the beach.
