Apply for participation in the plein air of artists in Koknese 15.08.-20.08.
Aizkraukle Local Municipality invites you to apply for participation in the plein air of artists in Koknese from August 15-20 (6 days, 5 nights). If you are between the ages of 16 and 30 (including) and have experience in visual art, then take part in the plein air “Life by the Rivers”. We especially invite participants from the Interreg V-A Latvia-Lithuania cross-border cooperation program territories (Kurzeme, Zemgale, Latgale, Klaipeda, Telslal, Slaullal, Kaunas, Panevezys, Utena). During this week, we will visit the most beautiful places in Koknese and capture them in works of art, we will make new friendships with creative people, take a boat trip along the Daugava and Perse rivers, take part in various master classes, as well as enjoy live music and, in the end, create an exhibition. Participation in the plein air is for free, but the materials for work must be provided by participants them self (paints, brushes, canvas, paper or cardboard, portable easel and other materials required for the chosen technique). The organizers will provide accommodation in dormitories, meals, transportation during the plein air, master classes, recreational activities, as well as a limited number of easels and canvases for painting. Arrival is with own transport on August 15th (transport from Kuanas to Latvia is provided and covered by Kaunas District Municipality). A more extensive program will be sent to those interested. The plein air will be held in both Latvian and English, as 10 participants will be from Latvia and 10 from Lithuania.
