Paint Out Norwich: Plein Air Painting on Mousehold Heath

by Cass Art

After the success of Paint Out Wells 2015, Paint Out are now holding a plein air painting event in Norwich this October!

Paint Out Norwich are on a mission to redefine en plein air painting in the 21st century - to bring art to the masses, the same way that Norwich School of Artists in 1803 did when they opened Britain's first provincial art movement for working class artists.

Over 40 Paint Out Norwich competition artists will join members of the public – amateur and keen artists alike, in a mass painting session on the historic Mousehold Heath, with beautiful skyline views overlooking the city of Norwich and the towering spire of the Cathedral.

Here are Cass Art we are proud to sponsor the event, offering prizes of gift vouchers to selected public artists which they can spend on art materials. We are also sponsoring an art bursary prize for the best young artist under 30 at the Paint Out Norwich competition.


There will be two competitions running during the week 19th - 23rd October: the Nocturne and Core Event. Entries can be submitted here ( for free if you're under 30) and you can view the full core event schedule and nocturne event schedule for the selected artists.

The public event - where anyone of any age or ability can get involved - takes place on 22nd October from 1:30 to 4:30pm. Bring your own materials and meet outside the Cafe Britannia, 3 Britannia Rd, Norwich, Norfolk NR1 4LU to take part.

Watch the video below from last year's Paint Out Norwich, as artist Bryony Birkbeck talks about her experience.
