Harrison invites you to paint in the park

Painting in "plein air" style a unique opportunity in stunning setting

Artists are being invited to visit Harrison Hot Springs for a day of “plein air” painting while being surrounded by spectacular scenery.

The event is happening on Aug. 18, from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Artists will be allowed to setup to sell their artwork and/or to paint, photograph, network with fellow artists or do whatever experiences they choose.

They are required to bring their own equipment such as seating, easels, art supplies, portable table, camera, shade umbrella, etc. to make the day enjoyable and comfortable.

The day is exclusive to two-dimensional artists, not crafters and are reminded that winds can flare up, and to take this into consideration when setting up.

Available painting areas are from the Harrison Hotel entrance, along the beach, to and including Rendall Park (by boat launch), on grassed areas only, and not on walkways.

Organizers suggest carpooling as parking is limited. There is no admission fee for the event.
