A Little Bit About the Event
Plein Air Easton & Chesapeake Fine Art Studio Present: Rehearse Quick Draw
One of Plein Air Easton’s most remarkable events is its Quick Draw. In this fast-paced skilled painting competition, any artist with $10 and ambition has 2 hours to turn a blank canvas into a completed painting and is eligible for prizes and potential sales. The event has been known to have as many as 200 artists vying for any patch of shade to produce their best work surrounded by throngs of eager art collectors. Everybody would admit that the scene is intensely exciting and there are many great plein air painters that find that scene terrifying.
In an effort to nuture blossoming artists, refine skills and encourage participation in PAE's Quick Draw, for the past several years we've partnered with Chesapeake Fine Art Studio to ‘Rehearse Quick Draw’. This is an opportunity to overcome your fears around painting in a busy crowd with limited time, get valuable feedback from award-winning artists, win prizes and scholarships and gain confidence before commpetitng in Easton's Quick Draw or any other Quick Draw competition in the country for that matter. In 2017, Rehearse Quick Draw took place on three consecutive days where participants could participate in one or all three events. As one participant told us, "The opportunity to experience the Pre-Quick Draw was of immense benefit. The critique's were so helpful and the opportunity to ask questions and get feedback from the participating artist was really super."
