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 2017 our last public paint out was on Sunday 15 October, 1-4pm on Kett’s Heights and Mousehold Heath with art workshops to brush up your skills on 14 October, the Saturday before.

Unsold public paintings can be collected from the Cathedral Hostry on 28 October 10-6pm, the winner of the event – Paul Gadenne, sold at the Private View, after the public paintings were on view for three days in Studio 20’s window.

Our main competition artists returned to the City Centre, outside City Hall to paint nocturnes from a static double decker open top bus for a new perspective view at height over the city during dark.
