Burnaby Arts Council - Park's Edge Paint Off
Event Website: https://www.burnabyartscouncil.org/live-painting-tournament/
Deer Lake Gallery, Deer Lake Avenue, Burnaby, BC, Canada
For almost 40 years the Burnaby Arts Council has presented the best in local performers and artists set against the beautiful Deer Lake Park. The Summer Arts Festival will have a great addition this year with its own brand of live painting as it hosts 2nd Park’s Edge Paint Off!
"3-2-1… and paint".
The final words one often hears when entering the colour massacres of live painting competitions. Usually a short amount of time, a palette of colours, brush in hand and an audience of eager onlookers excited about what creations lay in store from the competitors. Many people have never seen how paintings are created and it is an exciting spectacle to get a glimpse of what the creative process looks like first hand. Mingle that with an emphasis on speed and the chance for prizes and recognition and it’s a recipe for a fun engaging event with thrills, excitement and culture. Audience voting determine the winners of the events, and silent auction for the real prize of those who will get to walk home with a one-of-a-kind piece of art.
