Youth Plein Air 2014

KidSPOT, Chestertown RiverArts’ new children’s programming center, is sponsoring “Youth Plein Air,” an outdoors painting event for children 9-12 and teens 13-17 during RiverArts’ Paint the Town celebration on Saturday, April 26, 2014.

Canvas, paints, brushes and easels will be provided for artists use. Entry is $5 per participant. Art supplies are being generously supplied by our sponsor, The Finishing Touch. Limited space is available so please register early!

Easels will be set up on Saturday, April 26 from 12pm – 2pm. They will be placed circling the fountain in Fountain Park but artists can decide if they want to paint the fountain or to turn their easels out and paint the Chestertown Farmers’ Market surrounding them. This event is rain or shine – a tent will already be erected over the fountain as part of the Taste the Town event.

Monday, April 7 through Friday, April 11 – Registration forms are available at RiverArts, KidSpot, and copies will be sent to local schools. Online registration is also available but will not be considered complete until $5 registration payment is submitted.

Saturday, April 26 12-2pm
A representative from KidSpot will be onsite during the event. Parents of participants 12 and under are encouraged to stay with the understanding that a ‘no coaching’ rule will be in effect!

Youth Plein Air Artist’s Choice Judging: All artists are asked to meet at the RiverArts Gallery between 430pm-5pm on Saturday, April 26 to judge their work.
Youth Plein Air Artist’s Choice Awards Ceremony: Awards will be announced as part of the Wet Paint Show and Sale immediately following the judging.

Artwork will remain on display at KidSpot until Saturday, May 10. Artists are asked to make arrangements to pick-up their work during normal business hours. Please contact the KidSpot Coordinator, Tambra Trevarrow, for more information at
