A large group of Rockaway residents of all ages turned out on Monday for the first "Paint Out," an open air event to which the community was invited to try their hand at creating seascapes. The group met at Beach 73 Street and the boardwalk for the art event. No experience was required. Some instruction was given. All of the art supplies were sponsored by Arverne By The Sea, which sits right off the boardwalk. The event was presented by Art Adventures and More and co-sponsored by the Parks Dept. Seniors came out to try their hand at a plein air seascape. This young woman created her own art. Lots of kids attended and got their chance to create their own art.
