Location: The Old School House Arts Centre, Qualicum Beach (map)
Time: 11:00am to 2:00pm
Our Grand Prix d’Art is a “race”; competing artists must complete a work of art “en plein air” (working outside on location, not in a studio) within three hours. Each Plein Air Painter will find a location in the picturesque town of Qualicum Beach. The work must represent or be inspired by some thing or person that is visible from the assigned location. The Plein Air Painters must complete their work within the three-hour limit and have the paintings in display condition, titled and priced for sale no later than one hour after completion. A panel of three judges then determines the winners of the contest. All the paintings from the event will hang in our galleries until August 9th.
