Take a deep breath of plein air at this painting festival based in Wexford town. Open to all artists, it features paint-outs, workshops, life drawing, lectures, social events and an exhibition of work produced.

Art In The Open is a plein air, or outdoor, painting festival based in Wexford but travelling to different locations during the week. Artists worldwide register online and are entitled to submit work produced to an exhibition, where all paintings are for sale and can be considered for awards, so if you're talented with a brush, why not get involved?

Once registered, you'll be entitled to attend free lectures and social events. Workshops and demonstrations with leading international plein air artists can also be booked and paid for in advance. For a small fee, you can also practice life drawing on two evenings.

Every year a Quick-Draw event is held in Wexford town with entry fees being donated to charity. Compete to win prizes sponsored by local businesses, or sell your work right off the easel. At the end of the festival, celebrate and enjoy socialising together at a sit-down meal.

The exhibition usually runs for two days, so get down to Wexford this summer to flex your creative muscle.
