Truro Center for the Arts at Castle Hill is partnering with The Great Provincetown Schooner Regatta Race with our annual Paint the Race Event.  The event will take place on September 6th from noon – 3pm, meeting at MacMillian’s Pier in Provincetown.  Tickets for this event are $25 for members and $35 for non-members. 

Castle Hill invites artists and visitors from Cape Cod and surrounding areas to participate in a unique opportunity to “Paint the Race” from a whale watch boat during the Great Provincetown Schooner Regatta Race.

Join us at the best venue in town to watch, take photos, paint or just be on the water.  The deck of the Captain John offers a unique vantage point that not only captures the drama and excitement of the regatta, but also provides a once-in-a-lifetime chance to get close enough to paint even the crew members in action. 

This will allow tourists and residents alike to have a truly distinctive experience as they watch local artists in action or participate themselves and make a painting of their own.  As this event honors the great maritime history and natural resources of our region, we also want to honor the great artists of this region, including Henry Hensche, Charles Hawthorne and William Halsall. 

We will be boarding the boat at 11:45 at MacMillian’s Pier in Provincetown; if you have not yet purchased your tickets you can do so at or by calling 508-349-7511.  Tickets are $25 for Castle Hill Members and $35 for non-members.
