Paint the Town – Alpharetta Plein Air

May 7-11, 2024

Plein air, from the French term en plein air, is the method of painting outdoors directly from life. It has become a wildly popular practice with artists across the world and this event is the first of its kind in Alpharetta.

Art lovers will have the chance to watch artists in action around our fair city with opportunities to purchase original art with hometown appeal, featuring locations such as Alpharetta City Center, parks, gardens and more.
