Historic San Clemente comes alive through the eyes of competing plein air artists who “paint San Clemente” and the beauty of this “Spanish Village by the Sea.” The public is invited to view the artists’ progress as they paint each day throughout the community.  Winners are announced and recognized at the Saturday evening Gala, June 20th, 6:00 – 8:30 pm, held in the San Clemente Community Center Auditorium.  Afterwards, the artwork will be on display and for sale in the Art Gallery through July 30th.

Paint San Clemente first started in 2002 with 24 entrants and $500 in prizes. It has since exploded to become one of the premier Plein Aire competitions in the country.  Our 2008 series of events attracted over 100 artists who shared in over $13,000 in prize money and gifts. The events also generated over $5,000 in scholarships and art supplies for our local schools, which helped fuel the ongoing art renaissance in our beautiful “City-by-the-Sea”.

Jurors named for 2015 Paint San Clemente:

June 13 — (3 hour) Quick Draw paintings: Michael Obermeyer

June 20 — Paint San Clemente plein air paintings:
