Old Fashioned 4th of July Parade ~ Sidewalk Chalk Give-Away

July 4th ~ Ocean Park, WA

PAA members march the parade route pulling red wagons filled with sidewalk chalk…over 1000 pieces…and encourage children along the way to “make art”! When the parade is over, the streets are filled with their artistic endeavors. Take a moment after the parade to view their work.

 

Starving Artist Sale

July 5 ~ 10 am to 4 pm ~ Ocean Park Library ~ 1308 256th Place, Ocean Park, WA

Some of the best bargains in town! Traditionally, this sale provided funds for PAA’s Scholarship Program. A percentage of the sales continue to do so, but it also allows artists the chance to clear out their studios. Art, art supplies, frames, paper, canvas, books and more at rock-bottom prices. The Starving Artists Sale is a fun and casual day, allowing conversation with various artists and exceptional shopping. The sale is back at the recently expanded Ocean Park Library. If you haven’t seen the updated facility with its timbered ceilings, the sale gives you the perfect chance to drop by.

Free admission to sale ~ ample parking available!

(This event also gives you a chance to purchase this year’s NW Garlic Festival Poster, as well as previous year’s posters, in case you missed the festival).

The winner of this public vote will be announced at the Artists’ Reception, held Sunday afternoon from 3 to 5 pm…public invited of course!  Inspired Creations Shopping Experience, featuring art and art inspired work for same-day purchase, allows even more work from the exhibiting artists to be on view.

7th Annual Studio Tour

November 28 & 29 Peninsula Wide

Held over Thanksgiving Weekend, this two-day event encompasses 20 locations, from Chinook to Surfside.

PAA artists open their studios to the public for demonstrations, sales and the chance to see art in the making. Some studio locations will host more than one artist and several PAA member owned galleries and art related shops will be on the tour as well.  All offer the chance to “talk art” with PAA artists. White, black and red PAA Art Event signs clearly mark the way to the next studio. Free Studio Tour maps, with additional directions and information are available closer to the date of the event at several locations as well as in the November 27th Chinook Observer, on our Facebook page and on our website. This is a great way to see the peninsula and to introduce visitors and locals to our art community while finding unique, one-of-a-kind gifts for the holiday season!

Scholarship

Peninsula Arts Association awards an annual scholarship of $1000 to a high school graduate from the Naselle Grays River or Ocean Beach School Districts.  The scholarship may be used to further the student’s visual art education in college, purchase supplies, media or equipment to enhance their artistic endeavors or pay fees for art related workshops.  The award is determined by a process of application, grade point average, letter of interest and intent regarding art, references, a portfolio of completed art work and interview with the Peninsula Arts Association Scholarship Committee.

Art Enrichment

Peninsula Arts Association is committed to encouraging art throughout the local community of artists, students, seniors, residents and visitors.  We support many community activities such as the 4th of July Parade, Community Christmas Tree ornaments, Santa’s Workshop (all Ocean Park area events), the Summerfest Program in Long Beach, art related projects at local schools and more.  We are re-designing our Art Box Program to better serve the area’s teachers with art supplies and curriculum compatible lesson plans available to “check out” according to their (the teachers) busy schedules.  We also serve as a clearing house of information about the many area art happenings through our Facebook page, web site and with bulletin emails to membership.  PAA strives to bring the joy of art to as many people as possible through exhibitions and sponsored art events.  Our Art Enrichment Program is ever changing to meet the needs of our community.

Due to the kind and generous offer from the City of Long Beach, we now have a home base to hold meetings, store all the basics needed to put on an art show and conduct art workshops.  Member workshops, called Meet Ups are in process and public workshops for all ages will first be offered this summer.  Our green and white office is located just behind the Old Train Depot in Long Beach.
