Each summer, the Oceanside Museum of Art hosts this celebration of open-air painting, with artists convening at locations across the city to capture its inimitable coastline, cityscapes, lagoons, rolling hills, and historic buildings and vistas. All skill levels are invited to participate, and no membership is required. The event includes workshops led by featured artists, an art sale and awards celebration, and a plein air juried exhibition and auction.
