Pintar Rapido

by Cass Art

The term 'pintar rapido' directly translates to painting quickly, and that's exactly what you'll be doing if you enter this year's competition. Exploring the beautiful cityscape of London's borough of Kensington & Chelsea en plein air, Pintar Rapdio is certainly the artists' event of the summer. 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. Cass Art customers can also enjoy complimentary tickets to the exhibition.

Last year 400 artists joined in with the brilliance of Pintar Rapido, travelling from across the globe to participate. Pintar Rapido turned out to be the biggest outdoor painting event ever staged in the UK, hosted in the stunning borough of Kensington and Chelsea.

Entry couldn't be easier, simply apply online for your Artist's 2-Day Pass beforehand and arrive at Chelsea Town Hall on Saturday 19th July between 9-11am with tools in hand ready to be registered. Following that, the day is yours! Explore the traditional architecture, serene parks and gardens, the vibrant streets or perhaps a secret hideout of your own. Be sure to return to the Town Hall by 8pm, allowing time for framing, to have your piece collected for hanging.

The following day, curated at Chelsea Town Hall, all works will be immediately entered into the Pintar Prize, with the opportunity to win cash prizes worth £1500 and £750 worth of art materials courtesy of Cass Art Kensington. Alongside the prizes, the exhibition will be open to the public between 12-6pm, where local residents and guests can meet the artists and make a purchase.
