The Paint Quick Competition is a plein air painting competition exhibit that is open to anyone who wishes to participate. If you would like to paint in the Paint Quick follow the registration process below. On-line registration is open. Event check-in is at 7:45 a.m. The competition will include invited artists, professionals, enthusiasts and the simply adventurous who will compete in this fun event. These artists will paint be in the Olmsted Linear Park and will have two hours to complete their work. During this short time, all registered Paint Quick participants will set up their easels and paint or draw en plein air in the Atlanta's Olmsted Linear Park.

This is one of the most compelling exciting experiences of the week. Together, artists and spectators are immersed in the creative process. See the scenes and how the artists interpret them. Smell the wet paint and get caught up in the joy of watching 100's of paintings come to life before your eyes!


En plein air, or plein air painting, is a phrase borrowed from the French equivalent meaning "open (in full) air". It is particularly used to describe the act of painting outdoors, also called French: peinture sur le motif ("painting of the object(s) or what the eye actually sees"), where a painter reproduces the actual visual conditions seen at the time of the painting. This method contrasts with studio painting or academic rules; those might create a predetermined look. En plein air can also b9 used to describe other activities where a person partakes in an outdoor environment.
