We’d like to invite you to join artists all around the world on Saturday, August 29th, for our 2020 Grand Prix: International Paint In-Place plein air painting challenge!  Although we won’t all be able to gather and paint in Steveston as usual this year, we’re going to take this as an opportunity to share our event with artists in all parts of the globe.  Please share this email with your artist friends!

This coming  Saturday AUGUST 29th morning set yourself up to paint for three hours wherever you are in the world, and when your time’s up take a photo of your painting on location and your final cropped artwork and share them on Instagram using the hashtag #grandprixofart2020 by midnight for a chance to win prizes and bragging rights.  If you’re not on social media, you can email your images to grandprixofart@gmail.com and we will add it to the Grand Prix: Paint In-Place Gallery.  When you submit your photos please let us know if you are a Professional Artist (Masters Category), Amateur (Adult Open Category) or Youth (under 18 years of age).  We are super excited to see all of the places in the world our submissions come from, so please give us some background on your specific location!
