Paint Walla Walla will raise funds for Carnegie Picture Lab art education programs in area schools. Artists will paint at sites in the Valley in September. Proceeds from the Sept. 20 sale of their work will go to the project.

Paint Walla Walla, the seventh annual en plein-air painting event fundraiser happening Sept. 20 for Carnegie Picture Lab, offers artists the chance to paint at four picturesque locations around Walla Walla. 

At the end of the four-day sessions, artists show and sell their work at a special gallery exhibit, which will be 5:30-7:30 Sept. 20. Twenty percent of sales benefit Carnegie Picture Lab’s elementary art education programs.

Painting sessions will be from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Sept. 9, 11, 14 and 16 at midcentury home and garden, Cape Cod residence in the woods, historic farming property, heritage house, century old trees, barns, gardens, mountain vistas, mountain views, creek, pond and garden locations. There are currently a few openings for artists to fill 25 slots. 

Reaching more than 4,000 students in 12 area schools, Carnegie Picture Lab nourishes creativity by supporting and enhancing art education for elementary school children in the Walla Walla Valley.
