Laguna Art-A-Fair Old West Quick Draw


Art-A-Fair Old West Quick Draw

Sunday, August 9th, 2015

It is Sunday, August 9th, a glorious summer day. You are at Art-A-Fair, Laguna Beach’s world class art festival, happily strolling among its 125 extraordinary local and national artists. Suddenly, you hear a deep voice shout, “Draw partner.” You don’t reach for your gun, you reach for your paintbrush. You are in the middle of Art-A-Fair’s Old West Quick Draw, a unique event for participants and observers alike.

Art-A-Fair throws out a challenge and provides the opportunity for artists of every experience level to paint, draw or photograph live Old West models, available for one hour. There is no charge except the Art-A-Fair entry fee. On Sunday August 9th, the schedule is as follows: 10:00 AM – the Western models arrive; 10:30 – 11:30 AM – Quick Draw; 11:45 AM – Lunch (at additional charge). Artists will need a signed release from the Old West models for any images (resulting from this event) for resale purposes.

This is a day for everyone to enjoy. Artists challenge their ability to create in a limited amount of time, while working with live models. Observers can enjoy watching the creative process come to fruition.

Art-A-Fair offers many pleasures through the summer season. Live music plays for listening or dancing pleasure on Thursdays through Sundays. Daily art workshops are taught by professional artists. Tivoli Too! Restaurant provides a relaxing retreat in its garden courtyard, overlooking a cascading waterfall, where fine cuisine is a work of art in itself.

Art-A-Fair is open Sunday-Thursday 10:00am-9:00pm, Friday and Saturday 10:00am-10:00pm. A season pass is $7.50 for adults, $4.50 for seniors and military, children 12 and under are free with an adult. Call 949-494-4514 or visit
