Sponsored by Beverley Street Studio School
Saturday, April 27, 2019

The fourth annual Paint Staunton Quick Draw Art Competition will be held on Saturday, April 29, 2017 in the Sunspots Pavilion, across from Sunspots Studios in downtown Staunton, VA. Area plein air artists will compete for $1200 in cash prizes and the opportunity to capture the timeless beauty of historic downtown Staunton.

Plein air (French for painting outdoors) painters paint from life in the moment and create meaningful art. Upon arrival, event organizers stamp the backs of the blank canvasses. The painting competition begins at 9:30 am and ends at 12:30 pm. The artists turn in the paintings for judging followed by the Wet Paint Sale which is open to the public from 2:00 to 3:00 pm in the Sunspots Pavilion.

Not an artist but love art? Come to downtown Staunton from 9:30 am to 12:30 pm and watch the artists in action. And make sure you stay for the Wet Paint Sale from 2:00 to 3:00 pm at the Sunspots Pavilion where you can buy the newly created, original art.

The Paint Staunton Quick Draw Art Competition will be held rain or shine.
