The Paint Quick is a plein air painting competition, exhibit and sale that is open to anyone who wishes to participate. It is our hope that up to 200 people; competition painters, professionals, enthusiast and the simply adventurous compete and have fun. These artists have only two hours to complete their works. During this short time, all registered Paint Quick participants will set up their easels and paint or draw en plein air in the Atlanta Olmsted Linear Park.
This is one of the most 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 excitement of watching 100s of paintings come to life before your eyes!
