The Paint Quick Competition is a plein air painting competition exhibit that is open to anyone who wishes to participate. If you would like to paint in the Paint Quick follow the registration process below. On-line registration is open. Event check-in is at 7:45 a.m. The competition includes invited artists, professionals, enthusiasts and the simply adventurous who compete in this fun event. These artists paint in the Olmsted Linear Park and have two hours to complete their work. During this short time, all registered Paint Quick participants set up their easels and paint or draw en plein air in the Atlanta's Olmsted Linear Park. 

This is one of the most compelling exciting experiences of the week. Together, artists and spectators are immersed in the creative process. See the scenes and how the artists interpret them. Smell the wet paint and get caught up in the joy of watching 100's of paintings come to life before your eyes! 

After the Paint Quick, an exhibit is held in the Olmsted Park where they were created. The paintings are judged by Olmsted Plein Air Invitational Judges and Awards will be presented at 12:30 pm. Paintings will be for sale.  Paintings will be removed at 2:00 p.m. Everything about Paint Quick is quick...so do not miss out!
