PAINT HISTORIC WAXAHACHIE!
So….what’s a paint out? En plein aire is a French phrase meaning “in the open air”. Commonly known as a “paint out”, a plein aire event is an interactive encounter with art and artists, stimulating curiosity, inquiry and reflection.
Painting on location from start to finish, the artist is doing more than merely painting outdoors; the artist is capturing a moment in time . Celebrating the art, history and architecture of Waxahachie, our plein aire event allows visitors and locals alike the unique opportunity to learn about outdoor painting, support art education in the community, and meet some of the best plein aire artists in Texas.
ART on the Square – 113 W. Franklin presents the exhibition and sale of more than 200 original paintings created during our 10-day “Paint Historic Waxahachie” paint out. We hope you will take this grand opportunity to purchase a painting and take home a permanent piece of this magical experience.
