Past event: Pintar Rapido Comes To Glasgow

by Cass Art

Pintar Rapido is Europe's largest outdoor painting festival, competition and exhibition. It's been at home in London and Amsterdam for several years, and the exciting news is that for the first time this year, it will also be hosted in the city of Glasgow!

The term 'pintar rapido' directly translates to painting quickly. Hundreds of artists get involved, painting a picture of London (and this year Glasgow) en plein air in just one day, and all the pictures come together in a vibrant exhibition at the end.

Cass Art is proud to support Pintar Rapido with the chance for one entrant to win £750 worth of art materials as part of the Pintar Prize. 


Painting Day - Saturday 15th August
After choosing their own location to paint in Glasgow each artist has a day to create a painting, using any materials, medium and working to any size.

Exhibition and Sale - Sunday 16th August
All the works will be exhibited at the Royal Concert Hall in Glasgow, for you to browse or even buy your favourite.

Pintar Prize
One lucky painter will be awarded the Pintar Prize, which is £1000 and £750 to spend at Cass Art, courtesy of Cass Art Glasgow. 

Pintar Rapido Painting Festival

The London festival happened in the middle of July and was a roaring, sunny success. Take a look at some of our photos to show some highlights of the day and exhibition.
