The Miller Beach Art & Creative District invites artists to participate in our first annual Plein Air Event, a day of painting and drawing on locations in and around Miller Beach. After the plein air painting there will be a reception and public exhibition to show and sell the work created.

Plein-air painting refers to the technique of painting out-of-doors which was initiated by the French Impressionists in the mid-nineteenth century. The aim and challenge of plein air painting is to “capture the moment”, working quickly to complete a painting in a fairly short period of time. TO ENTER
