Paint the Town Extraordinaire! Plein Air Painting in Downtown Oakville

Artists from Oakville and beyond will be “Painting the Town,” this June in Downtown Oakville. Every Sunday in June from 10am-3pm members of the Oakville Art Society and other artists will be set up throughout the downtown painting pictures of our beautiful streetscape.

“The Oakville Art Society is really looking forward to painting in Downtown Oakville,” said Doug McKirgan of the Oakville Art Society. “This event is part of a very exciting year for the society; we’re celebrating our 50th anniversary this year – culminating in our Starry Night Gala in November.”

Paint the Town Extraordinaire is a partnership between the Downtown Oakville BIA and the Oakville Art Society to bring animation to the downtown this June. Every Sunday artists will be spread throughout the downtown plein air painting. Plein air painting is from the French phrase en plein air, literally “in the open air.” This style of painting developed among French impressionists in the 1800’s and now it is coming to Downtown Oakville!

Join us every Sunday this June in Downtown Oakville and remember to grab a coffee, pop into your favourite store and witness art animating the street. For more information please visit oakvilledowntown.com or oakvilleartsociety.com.
