Paint Out Plein Air Art Competition 2015Paint Out™ is an art event aiming to redefine en plein air art practice. Our core event is the UK's premier juried en plein air competition, celebrating the talents of national and international artists before a wide and growing audience in the heart of medieval and iconic Norwich. Our first satellite event was Wells-next-the-Sea on the North Norfolk coast.
The Paint Out competitions, however, accept any 2-dimensional media or mixed-media applied to a canvas/board/paper embracing drawing, pastels, oils, watercolour, acrylic, pen and ink, and even screen-printing. Innovation and originality are encouraged alongside traditional art forms.Plein Air - Art works carried out in the open air - chiefly with reference to painting.
