The Sandgren Coast PaintOut, July 15-July 27, 2013

The Sandgren Coast PaintOut is an outdoor painting event. It happens rain or shine for two-weeks each summer. It was initiated over forty years ago by painter and teacher Nelson Sandgren who passed it along to his son Erik. At the heart of the PaintOut is a shared regard for the awesome natural forces visibly at work, a love for Oregon coast, the fondness of intrepid painters for each other, and a shared belief that the challenge of making paintings on site is a broadening experience.

(Erik's workshop is filled. He welcomes outdoor painters to come and paint on these dates at these locations):


  1. This is the BEST paintout. No pressure to compete or deadlines. Just a heck of a lot of good painting locations and camaraderie.

  2. I'll be there from the 19th-21st! Can't wait!
