For almost a decade, The Plein Air Painting Festival has been a staple of Kern County’s cultural calendar. Derived from the French practice of painting landscape pictures outdoors, plein air painting has evolved into an immersive practice of creating art in the public sphere. The Festival offers artist discussion panels, workshops, and parties as part of the week-long event, as well as a chance to observe artists in action as they take inspiration from the vibrant happenings and iconic scenes around the city.
