En Plein Air 2018


Windsor & Eton En Plein Air is an open air painting event and competition open to both amateur and professional artists and artists’ groups.

Royal consent has again been granted to allow the competition to be staged within the walls of Windsor Castle.  Artists are invited to create their own masterpiece over a six and a half hour period in one of ten positions within the castle grounds, including the beautiful, secluded private Moat Garden.

As a visitor to Windsor Castle you are welcome to join in this unique cultural experience and witness 100 artists capturing its familiar and less well known aspects. *

Get caught up in the excitement of watching paintings come to life before your eyes. Then vote for your favourite painting, as part of the People’s Choice Award, at the pop-up street gallery and sale of artwork to be held on Castle Hill from 5pm.

Come and be part of this great spectacle - art created en plein air.

Competition, 9.30am – 4pm, Windsor Castle

Exhibition and sale, 5.00pm – 6.30pm, Castle Hill (exact location subject to change due to weather or other circumstances)
