Event Description

Paint Ventura

Paint Ventura 2012 is adding two exciting new events and expanding from a 2 day to a 4 day weekend art experience.


Paint Ventura’s 3rd free creative adventure is April 26th through 29th in Downtown Ventura featuring over 100 Plein Air Artists creating, selling and teaching in downtown Ventura. Each day is FREE to the public and we are encouraging people of all ages to visually explore historic Downtown Ventura’s art scene and Ventura County’s creative individuals. Paint Ventura’s first event in 2011 featured over 54 Artists and drew a crowd of thousands of people to Downtown Ventura.


The 4 day Paint Ventura will begin with the Paint Out on Thursday and Friday April 26th and 27th.  Plein Air artists will begin with a fresh canvas or paper and have two days to paint as many Ventura inspired paintings as they wish.


Saturday, April 28th 11-5pm – “Paint Ventura Umbrella Art Fair.” Artists will have an umbrella art show where they will be creating art, selling their pieces and conducting workshops.  Main St between Oak and Palm will be closed and the festival will be both in the street and in front of the shops. Over 100 artists will be on the streets creating and selling their work, plus live entertainment by several local acoustic musicians, plus the plein air artists will be in the mini park completing their works from the paint-out as they prepare for Sunday’s competition.


Several low cost workshops will be held for all skill levels for both adults and youth.  Sessions will be held throughout the weekend in a variety of media including painting, drawing, metal work, photography and more; please check our web-site for a full list of classes. The public is encouraged to watch the artists at work and seek out a new creative side of their own.


Sunday, April 29th 11am-5pm- Easel Show and Best of Show Judging for the Works created during the Paint Out Thurs-Sat.

All of the artists that participate in the Paint out can have any of their stamped pieces in the easel show at Red Brick Gallery.  The finished pieces will be for sale and are eligible for one of the people’s choice awards.  Several awards will be given with monetary value, specific prizes and amounts to be announced.


Paint Ventura is currently seeking artists to participate in creating, selling their work and conducting workshops.
