Kids Paint OC: A Plein Air Event


The Art League of Ocean City presents: 


Join us for the very first Kids Paint OC event in conjunction with the annual Artists Paint OC Plein Air competition this August. What is “Plein Air”? En plein air is French for “in open air”. Plein air artists paint outdoors, capturing the beautiful scenery around them. Kids Paint OC is open to ages 6-17. All levels and abilities are welcome! There is no fee to participate.
