The Quick Draw is a fun, high energy painting and drawing event for all ages and levels of creativity.

Artists have two hours to complete their work, which will then be judged and presented for sale to the general public.

From 10am to 12 noon on Monday 27 September, Quick Draw artists will set up their easels and paint en plein air around the Mandurah Performing Arts Centre, Mandjar Square, the Boardwalk Precinct and Stingray Point.

This high energy competition is one of the highlights of Plein Air Down Under’s three-day festival program.  Together, artists and spectators are immersed in the creative process.
