Starting today the city of Winter Park will be hosting a Paint Out to benefit the Albin Polasek Museum & Sculpture Garden.
What is a Paint Out? It’s where 24 professional artists have been commissioned to paint original art work capturing the beauty of Winter Park on canvas. Plein Air is a French term meaning “in the open air” and describes art works painted outdoors with the subject directly in view rather than in a studio. Plein air artists capture the spirit and essence of a landscape or subject by incorporating natural light, color and movement into their works.
You can watch these artists work from April 28th until May 3rd all around downtown Winter Park. The finished pieces will be on display in the Museum until May 17th, and will be available for purchase.
