Laguna Beach Plein Air Painting Invitational


Join us for the

16th Annual Laguna Beach Plein Air Painting Invitational


Aliso Creek Inn & Golf Course  

October 12 – 19, 2014

Each year Laguna Beach, a famous seaside community and historic artist colony, turns into an outdoor studio with the always-exciting Laguna Beach Plein Air Painting Invitational. This event showcases the nation’s top plein air landscape painters who compete for prestigious prizes and participate in the week-long festivities including public paint outs, environmental awareness activities, and educational events.  Culminating with the highly anticipated Collectors’ Party and Public Sale.  Proceeds from this event will benefit Laguna Plein Air Painters Association, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit art organization.

Beginning in 2013, the Invitational will be held at the Aliso Creek Inn in the majestic Aliso Canyon – The “Yosemite” of Laguna Beach and the location of the area’s original homestead built by the Thurston family, the ancestors of current Laguna Mayor Kelly Boyd.  This event celebrates the artistic legacy of Laguna Beach.
