|Come paint the city on canvas at Oceanside Museum of Art’s (OMA) 2023 Oceanside Plein Air Festival from July 15 through July 22. Come together to celebrate creativity and the natural environment with artists of various skills to take over our beautiful city with plein air painting. There will be Artist Workshops, Artist Networking events, Big Easel Sales, Quick Paint Challenges, and Awards during the Festival. Artwork created during the Festival will also be up for selection for our Plein Air Exhibition that will run through January 2024 at OMA.
Friends, neighbors, visitors, and art lovers are all invited to share in the wonder as we watch scenes of the ocean and beaches, landscapes, and cityscapes of Oceanside come to life on canvas and paper.
