This event is sponsored by Chesapeake Fine Art Studio. This is a laid-back paint out for artists who are still learning and may not believe they are ready for conventional competition.
Location: South Harrison Street between East Dover and South Streets.
Do you want to take the fear out of painting in Plein Air Easton's nationally acclaimed Quick Draw? Would your Quick Draw painting style or technique benefit from tips, coaching or critique? Do you think that it would be more fun to have your first Quick Draw event take place in a more relaxed atmosphere? If you answered 'yes', then this is the Quick Draw for you. Join Quick Draw expert and celebrated educator, Hai-Ou Hou for a one-hour lecture full of rich tips for finishing a Quick Draw painting in two hours. Then take out your paints and complete one yourself in two hours.
