PLEIN AIR CURACAO FESTIVAL
Plein Air Curacao Festival is a project hosted by Art Foundation Curaçao on the tropical island of Curaçao. Local and international artists will paint on land as well as underwater. A variety of media will be used with emphasis on oils, watercolors, and pastels. Workshops are given for adults, teens, and kids. Paintings made on the last day of the festival are entered in a contest. Paintings made during the festival will be put up for sale.
The exotic island of Curaçao is often referred to as the Caribbean's "Hidden Treasure". It offers the perfect combination of stunning geography, rich culture, and colorful, colonial architecture -- the capital city of Willemstad has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage City --. Curaçao is a compelling place to capture on canvas and highly recommended for both plein air and plein eau (underwater) artists.

Make a difference to the community, to the arts, and to yourself.
Getting to meet other artists, learning from them and pushing my boundaries as a painter in an unfamiliar environment is exhilarating. Can't wait to connect with the mystery of Curacao.

The organizers were fantastic. They really made us feel welcomed and painting trips enjoyable. I look forward to teaching a workshop and to painting with everyone again!
