Plein Air Paint Out

Come and Paint the Day in Coos Bay!

Plein Air painters are invited to participate in Coos Art Museum’s “Plein Air Paint Out” adventure which will be taking place early morning through mid-day on Saturday, July 17, 2010. Participating artists will be located around the Coos Bay area – from the Coos Bay waterfront Boardwalk to the crashing surf of Cape Arago.

Check out the local scenery – and choose your painting location!

Here you will find a map and images of the various locations around the Coos Bay area for you to review and select your location.

There is NO registration fee for the “Paint Out”, but CAM would like to keep track of participants. Please return the activities registration sheet showing you will be participating in the Plein Air paint out by July 9, 2010.
