During the 2020 Umpqua Plein Air Event, UVA will host Young Artists en Plein Air, an exciting opportunity for young artists of all ages to create artworks in open air while developing their skills in a wide variety of painting and drawing media, including pastel, pencil, chalk, and acrylic. This is the perfect opportunity to get outdoors and make art, with mentoring from local artists.
The event takes place Saturday, October 10, 2020, 2:00—4:00pm. (You can arrive and check in at any time during the event.) (Please note the new date.)
Each young artist participant will be able to enter work created at this event in an exhibition that will be on view in UVA’s Student Gallery coincident with the Umpqua Plein Air show in the rest of the building. A jury of artists will select works from the Student Gallery exhibition to receive awards in three categories based on age—and the first, second, and third place winners in each category
will receive cash prizes!
