Paint Out has run a 100-person mass public paint out on Mousehold Heath, Norwich and sunrise paint outs on Wells Beach and Quayside in North Norfolk. In Norwich, we’ve also explored the historic Tombland and Cathedral Quarter district. 

In 2019 our next public paint out will be Saturday 6 July, 10-4pm around the UEA campus and Sainsbury Centre site. We are meeting at the Paint Out tent outside the Sainsbury Centre building and you can paint anytime during the specified hours.
